Callicarpa americana Beauty Berry Callicarpa 100 seeds
Seeds from this Callicarpa Americana or also known as French Mulberry. Exremely easy to grow from seeds, just start them inside in early spring and they will form berries the first fall. This loose open form deciduous 3′-4′ shrub is hardy from zones 6 – 10b and has something to offer every season. In the spring many light lavender blossoms appear around the stem nodules which turn into many tightly packed metallic shades of magenta and violet berries in the fall. During the winter it brings lots of birds for winter food source. Very easy to grow even in poor soils and very drought tolerant and likes to grow in light shade. A perfect plant for growing as an understory specimen for a low maintenance natural garden. Is also an eyecatcher in a semi-shady border.
