About The Plant
Fast-growing deciduous shrubs, beautyberries grow 4 to 8 feet tall and wide.
Plant them in a natural woodland setting under tall shade trees or as an informal hedge along the perimeter of a property.
Beautyberries have small, lavender-pink, lilac-like flowers in spring, followed by vivid purple or white berries in fall.
The berries attract birds, as well as provide winter color.
Although the berries are edible, they aren’t the most desired food of birds and often hang on the bush into late winter.
The foliage turns an attractive yellow in fall.
Select a site with light shade and very well-drained soil.
Beautyberries prefer at least an inch of rain (or equivalent watering) each week, although they can endure short periods of drought. Beautyberry generally doesn’t need pruning the shrub has an open form, and branches naturally hang down when weighted with berries. Beautyberry generally has few pest problems.
