  • 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

It lights up with every gorgeous hue a leaf can be, starting with purples and reds, intensifying to oranges and yellows. Happily, it’s not just a one note plant.

A rather neat habit makes this plant easy to work into your landscape or garden. Like other fothergilla, it may put out some suckers, but these can be easily controlled by pulling, cutting, or severing with a sharp spade.

    LEGEND OF THE SMALL® Bottlebrush

    Little habit. Little leaves. BIG fall color display. When you consider that a typical fothergilla can reach around 10 feet tall and wide, you might be rather shocked to learn that Legend of the Small® only grows to a third of that size. You get all the vibrant, eye-popping, jaw-dropping fall color, but in a manageable package. Plant it in the middle of your border or as a low hedge and watch it show off from spring until late fall. Spring is for milky white, bottlebrush shaped flowers, summer is for blue-green matte foliage, and fall is for the explosion of yellow, orange, and red leaf color. Like other fothergilla, it may put out some suckers, but these can be easily controlled by pulling, cutting, or severing with a sharp spade. Plant in sun, shade, or anywhere in between, but fall color will be most vivid in spots that get at least some sun each day.

    • Very small habit

    ‘Miss Violet’ Butterfly Bush

    These true purple blooms attract pollinators in droves! Each long spire is packed with little blooms, creating a feast that allows insects to conserve energy and stay in one place.

And not a single one of those blooms will result in a seedling, so you can plant ‘Miss Violet’ anywhere you’d like knowing that it will stay put. A more compact habit than the typical butterfly bush also helps with placement. Its 4-5’ tall and wide frame is snug, but not overwhelming in the middle of the border.

    • Rich purple coloring
    • Long feeding time for pollinators
    • Super tough landscape performance
