Callicarpa dichotoma

Compact Japanese Beautyberry. 2-4' tall shrubs may go unnoticed in spring and early summer, but become stars in September and October with lilac-violet berries are arranged in clusters on arching stems. Yellow fall foliage offers great contrast to the fruit. Grow 3-5' wide and likes well drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Plant several for good berry set.
