Product Information

Sometimes its hard for a plant to live up to its name, but Beauty Berry doesnt fail. This desirable shrub is grown for its long-lasting display of metallic pink berries that cling in dense clusters to bare branches between autumn and late winter. Excellent grown alongside other shrubs in a sunny or slightly shaded position, this bushy deciduous plant grows to around 3m, but can be kept more compact by pruning. In spring its young foliage is tinged a lovely shade of bronze before turning dark green, while summer interest is provided by a mass of pink flowers. A must have!

Top Tips

  • Plants require regular watering to produce the best autumn show - drought will mean that not many berries form.
  • Autumn colour is best in full sun.

Care Information

Planting advice for Callicarpa 'Profusion' Beauty Berry:

  • Grow Callicarpa in any fertile, well drained garden soil in full sun or partial shade.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Plants benefit from the addition of mycorrhizal fungi to the planting hole and roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.


 

Aftercare for Callicarpa 'Profusion':

  • Although callicarpa will tolerate a little lime in the soil, they will suffer from yellowing foliage if there is too much, so you may need to add ericaceous compost if your soil is particularly alkaline.
  • Keep plants well-watered.

 

Pruning Advice for 'Profusion' Beauty Berry:

  • Prune back stems in early spring, if necessary, to remove spindly or damaged growth, cutting back to a permanent framework to maintain shape and size.
  • In autumn stems with berries can be cut for indoor arrangements.
