I'm going to get a Beautyberry and wanted some idea about which varieties are the best. This one called 'Purple Pearls' has a purple tint in the foliage which would be a plus to me. Any tips about which of these are the best would be greatly appreciated.

Is that a native? That site doesn't have the botanical name of the plant they're selling.

The American Beauty Berry grows naturally in our forests. They are so pretty! What's more, they are mosquito repellants.

It would be hard to say anything about a plant without knowing its' exact ID. Spotted this plant in 'the wild' Tuesday.

I love mine because it does not need a pollinator. I read that it is self pollinating. I'm sure I only have one and I am sure it is full of berries so it must be true.

Green Grin! This pic is from last year, the berries I have now are not ripe yet so not as purple as what you see.
