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 love my beautyberry! The birds do too. This year, however, Matthew took over and trashed the beautyberry big time! The birds had a little to eat. There are still some leaves on the shrub, but later I will prune it and next year it will be it's beautiful self again!

I am beachside in Daytona. The beautyberry is totally salt tolerant.
