Beautyberry Variegated Duet
The Beautyberry Variegated Duet, Callicarpa dichotoma 'Duet', is very easy to grow and because of its arching habit, it looks great with other perennials and shrubs.
Duet has narrow leaves that are edged in yellow, which age to creamy white by late summer. Clusters of white pea-like flowers appear at the ends of the branches from early to mid-summer, but they are rather inconspicuous. In September the plant is then adorned with masses of chalky white berry clusters.
You can grow Duet in both moist and dry soils in light shade, with the end result being a simply superb plant! After the leaves have dropped in fall, the berries continue to hang on for several weeks.
This shrub makes a three-season plant because of its amazing foliage and berries. It creates an excellent hedge or screen; disease and insect resistant and naturally hardy.
This stunning beautyberry is the first stable variegated variety to be found in this genus. The berries are excellent wildlife food.
For a carefree, rapid growing shrub, you cannot do better than the variegated Duet Beautyberry!
