A friend got this down in Northern Indiana and has it planted in Michigan and it is beautiful. Hope someone can tell me what it is because I would love one. Thank you Barb

    It might be a Callicarpa Purple Pearls; google it. It looks like the same picture. Hope this helps.

    It’s called a beauty berry. They start out with white flowers and turn into these berries. They get quite large, so make sure you put in big area.

    it's French Mulberry or American Beautyberry-( callicarpa Americana) .

    Family name Verbenaceae. I've always thought they were poisonous.

      Beautyberry is not poisonous, but they don't taste good. Birds love them, though!

  • Beautyberry. Purple Beautyberry (Callicarpa dichotoma) is a deciduous shrub growing in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 5 through 8. The shrub produces light pink flowers in summer which turn to lilac-colored rows of berries that standout against the light green foliage in early fall.

    This is a gorgeous plant and purple is my favorite color. Would North Dakota be considered as a zone in the 5-8 zones for plants? I'd love to have one, or two, for myself. We do get cold in the winter. Summers are nice, for the most part, but we get strong winds at times.
