An apt name for this flexible, deciduous perennial shrub.
For maximum color interest in a single, easy to grow shrub, the Beautyberry is a sure thing. Rich green leaves frame white or pink blooms and clusters of tiny purple or white orbs. Berries and seeds alike are a favorite of many bird species.
On average, the Beautyberry will reach a mature height of between 3 and 5 feet tall, though ideal conditions can foster a Beautyberry shrub nearly double that height. These plants exhibit a tendency toward partial shade and are hardy and maintenance-free in nearly any soil type. Beautyberry shrubs are also heat and cold tolerant.
