All About American Beautyberry

By wildflowers
November 25, 2016

I really look forward to fall when so many plants change into their colorful fall wardrobes; it's such a beautiful sight. The American Beautyberry is one such plant that makes quite a showing, boasting bright magenta berries that look much like bracelets of amethyst beads glistening in clusters along drooping branches.

I've been thinking about planting more food for our woodland critters (besides our coleus) and this sounds perfect, especially if it repels ticks. Thanks so much!

I am so happy that this grows native on our new property & there seems to be plenty of it! YAY! Hurray!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

It is probably my favorite plant for fall color. Plus feeds the birds , what more could you ask for.

Thank you all for reading. I am very fond of the plants that provide food and/or shelter for the birds and other woodland critters.

Renee', I'll be glad to send you seeds if you would like to try growing some just let me know! Thumbs up Big Grin

Or anyone else for that matter, I'll be happy to gather some seeds.
