Purple Beautyberry

Callicarpa dichotoma Early Amethyst


Callicarpa dichotoma ‘Early Amethyst’ full sun  partial shade

A beacon for the fall border, this deciduous Korean species is considered by many to be the most refined Beautyberry, and its boldly hued early September fruit occurs well before other varieties. Small and shiny, rounded berry clusters achieve an astonishing, almost electric lavender hue. Flowers are delicate, diminutive and pink, quietly dressing up its handsome, very green leaf mass and gracefully rounded form.

‘Early Amethyst’ prefers well drained soil, tolerates some drought, appreciates a late winter pruning and produces more fruit when planted in groups.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
