Plant Family Guides: Callicarpa - Beautyberries Plant-Family Guides
Some trees and shrubs display beautiful fruits in late summer or fall, which persist into winter. In a glorious display of crimson, orange, yellow or even purple, their attractive berries adorn their branches in eye-catching bouquets, which gleam like jewels in the soft sunlight.
Winters may be long and cold, but your garden can allay that dreariness and be transformed into a place of natural beauty with visually arresting textures, colors, fragrance and flowers. To create such a beautiful winter scene, you need to make sure you select the right plants.
Grabbing our attention with the unusual color of their berries, some trees and shrubs create a spectacular show of intense purple fruits in late summer or fall, when few other flowering shrubs offer color. In a terrific display of violet or amethyst, their attractive berries adorn their branches and become the highlight of the winter landscape.
As some plants owe their charm to spectacular flowers, handsome leaves or colorful fruits, others are valued for their quiet beauty, peeping out here and there in the fall and winter garden. White-berried plants fall into this last category. Adding ornamental interest to the late season garden, most will remain into the winter, providing gardeners, birds and wildlife with holiday cheer.
