Callicarpa kwangtungensis (Large Plant)

Beauty berry

Hardy Shrub

This attractive species of Beauty bush is of Chinese origin and rarely seen in the garden centres. Callicarpa kwangtungensis bears clusters of pale pink flowers from July, succeeded in autumn by gleaming lilac berries. An alluring plum shade tints the leaves throughout the growing season, before turning to pinks and orange for a vibrant autumn display. Callicarpa is a useful shrub - equally at home in sun or part shade, and making a superb specimen shrub in cottage garden borders, woodland edges and wildlife areas. Height and spread: 200cm (78").
