American Beautyberry

American Beautyberry is best known for its vibrant purple clusters of drupe fruit. This deciduous shrub has an open growth habit with long arching branches providing interest even in wintertime. They will reach about 4-7' feet in height and 4-6' in width. Beautyberry can grow in full to part sun and prefers well drained soil. Small lavender-pink blooms appear in late spring to early summer followed by the showy purple or white berry clusters. Birds and other critters love 'em! Recent studies indicate beauty berry leaves contain several very strong mosquito repellent molecules. Try crushing the leaves on your clothing!
