American Beautyberry

The American Beautyberry is a deciduous shrub that typically grows to about four feet though it can reach heights of eight feet. This plant enjoys the sun and its light lavender-pink flowers appear from June to August. The real beauty of this plant is seen during the fall. The green foliage turns to a beautiful shade of yellowy green and purple fruit ripens around the stem. The fruit ripens for an extended period of time and as it is eaten by the birds it is replaced by new berries, meaning that the beauty of this shrub lasts all through the fall. This is an excellent option to bring fall color into your landscape!
