19 Sep Beauty berry is a beauty
Callicarpa ‘Profusion’ is a real looker this time of year. Check out these totally purple berries, and not dark purple, but purple bordering on hot pink:
I keep mine pruned pretty tight, it is just 4 feet tall and almost that wide. The berries are very visible, in fact, almost too visible. They keep scorching. This shrub really should have a little afternoon shade from the hot afternoon sunshine in Boise. I think it would look terrific planted en masse, with something to pick up that berry color come September. Thoughts? What would go with?
Gardening 365, Day 262. Yup, I ‘ve missed a few in the last week. Will try to do better.
