Ornamental Shrub with Unique 3-Season Color

Beautyberry shrubs are aptly named, producing a beautiful display with fall berries that add to that decorative view. Purple Pearls' purple-tinted, dark green foliage appears in spring and summer, darkening even more for autumn (its purple/black a sharp contrast to the brighter reds and yellows of autumn leaves).

In summer, the Purple Pearls Beautyberry, Callicarpa x 'NCCX1', had delicate pink blooms that appear amid the long branches, transitioning to berries for autumn. The deep purple berries appear like "purple pearls" in large, dramatic clusters along the branches. Your songbirds will relish the feast and in return treat you with the enjoyment of watching them harvest their fall bounty. Cut a few of the fall branches for your home. The dark foliage and purple berries will bring a unique accent to any of your floral arrangements.

Your Purple Pearls Beautyberry is a deciduous shrub with an upright, mounded habit and is quite hardy. Resistant to disease and pests, Purple Pearls can maintain its colorful show with little needed from you in return. Plant several en masse in a naturalized area where their show-stopping color can be magnified. Place a few in containers to spruce up less-flashy plantings. Even just one in your side yard is sure to draw the eye of every passer-by.

Purple Pearls Beautyberry is sure to maintain its beloved stature through the years as a fast growing shrub with amazing color. However, unlike many beautyberry varieties, Purple Pearls also tends toward an upright nature, requiring a bit less space than others in your yard. With so much to gain, and so little space needed, why not try a Purple Pearls Beautyberry today!
