  • PEARL GLAM® Beautyberry

    Beautyberry (known botanically as Callicarpa) always lives up to its name in late summer/early autumn, when its elegant, arching branches are covered with a huge crop of the most unbelievably purple berries. However, most beautyberries are less than thrilling up until that point. Pearl Glam® beautyberry changes all of that, thanks to elegant dark purple foliage from spring through frost. It also boasts a neat, upright habit that takes up far less valuable garden real estate than the old sprawling varieties. Pearl Glam beautyberry does not need a separate variety to pollinate it – it is self-fruitful and will develop a showy crop of purple fruits even if you plant just one. This is a very nice choice for cut flower arrangements as well as in the garden or landscape.

    Why grow Pearl Glam beautyberry?

    • Dark purple foliage keeps it interesting all season, not just in late summer when it fruits
    • Tons of clusters of perfectly round purple berries in late summer/fall
    • Space-saving upright habit takes up far less space than conventional beautyberries
