American Beautyberry (Calicarpa americana) is a Florida native that can grow in shady gardens as well as in full sun. It can attain a height of 6-8 feet in moist well drained soils. A shrub that definitely benefits from mulching. Its tiny pink flowers are produced up and down the branches, giving rise to clusters of bright purple berries that encircle the stems. A good wildlife food for birds.

Richard Lyons Nursery currently has this shrub in stock.
