Landscape looking dull? Instead of brown sticks, you could have glossy red berries if you plant Cardinal Candy viburnum. This linden viburnum was selected especially for its hardiness and heavy flower and fruit set.
Beautyberry (Callicarpa sp.) is widely grown for its fabulous purple berries, but its sprawling (and not super attractive) habit makes it unsuitable for many gardens. That stops here, with Purple Pearls. Its upright, vase-like form (it reaches 4-5’ high and just about 1-2’ wide, narrower at the base) makes it easy to pop into perennial borders, and its pink flowers and smoky purple foliage make it a stand out all season long.
Callicarpa is more commonly known as beautyberry - and what a beauty it is! While other plants are lighting up in red, orange, and yellow, beautyberry keeps its cool purple berries to brighten the landscape up through the first couple of frosts.
