beauty berry

  • Position: sun or dappled shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil. Can tolerate some lime in the soil.
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • This lovely deciduous shrub has clusters of small pink flowers in midsummer, but it's really prized for the clusters of striking, violet, bead-like berries that appear in autumn and remain after the plant has lost its leaves.The young foliage is often bronze-purple, becoming dark green in summer before turning golden-purple in autumn. Use it to brighten up a border in autumn, or cut the bare branches laden with berries for flower arrangements.
  • Garden care: Incorporate plenty of well-rotted organic matter into the planting hole. Prune back stems in early spring, if necessary, cutting back to a permanent framework.
