A fast growing perennial that can be pruned way back (even to the ground) by deer or shears and rebound in no time. American beautyberry has fragrant, fuzzy green foliage that is considered moderate in its preference to deer. In mid-summer, each leaf axil is surrounded by loads of small, pinkish to bluish flowers followed by clumps of powerfully bright, purple drupes. The flowering to fruiting works its way slowly up each stem until the leaves begin changing to yellow in the fall. After leaf fall, the persistent drupes stay put until the deer and birds nab them. Although tolerant of shade and drought, the best fruiting and growth occurs with plenty of sunlight on a fertile and moist but well drained site. Consider this guy a perfect replacement for its non-native and poisonous cousin, lantana. The USDA claims its insecticidal properties are also worthy of mention as mosquitoes, ants, and other pesky critters absolutely hate an extractive coined ‘callicarpenol’ that’s been rendered from it. In other words you can also plant around your cabin as an ornamental and to help keep bugs away, much like you would use a citronella plant.

Love this plant--And Nativ Nurseries!

'Bought these a few years back from Nativ Nurseries and love them...They grew well and come back strong, so I purchased more this year. (Initially they were sold out but I signed up for in stock notification and was notified pretty quickly they were back in stock.) They're beautiful--Am sure they'll do as well as the first have...Thanks again, Nativ Nurseries!

The plants were leafed out with a good root system and are doing well.

Nice sized healthy plants!

I ordered several beauty berry shrubs and cardinal flowers. Both had good root systems and look very healthy.
Nice sized plants too!

Fabulous

I love Beautyberry shrubs and so do the robins as soon as the berries are ready. I ordered 6 and each one is ready to start growing. Our new home just wouldn’t be the same without Beautyberry and these are the perfect size and quality to start our new garden. Thank you so much for a great product at a fantastic price.
