Why They Call It Beautyberry!
If you every wondered exactly why the beautyberry is called a beautyberry I'll give you two words: "Beauty" and "berry!" These beautiful purple clusters of purple berries are well worth the wait each year for the autumn display. I've added several new beautyberries from cuttings to my garden this year and can't wait until their display matches the first one I planted.
