Hi msp12845, Welcome!

Can you provide a bit more information about the plant you call American Beauty? There are numerous plants from Apples to Iris to Dahlia and even Rose named American Beauty and knowing the exact plant in question will be helpful.

I wonder if you might be referring to American Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) ? which can definitely be grown from seed.

Is it the one in the photos below? American Beautyberry should do very well in the Houston area and it can definitely be grown from seed. We had a large shrub in our backyard years ago but I never collected seed or tried my hand growing it from seed. Hopefully others who have had success with seeds will be able to offer advice/tips.
