Callicarpa bodinieri 'Profusion'
|Description||A superb shrub valued for its abundant clusters of long-lasting, violet-colored berries that cover the branches in fall. New growth has a bronze tinge. Small, purple-pink flowers appear in summer between the large green leaves. Prune in late winter to early spring to encourage new growth. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Keep soil moist, but not soggy.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 6 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||A beautiful addition to Audubon gardens as a late season food source for many species of birds. Plant as a backdrop, in mass, or spotted throughout the landscape for fall interest. Can be used as a standout specimen plant in a garden focal point as the plant matures into a vase shape form. This Asian native also adds interest and color to a Far East landscape design.|
|Companion Plants||Snowberry (Symphoricarpos); Eastern Cranberry (Viburnum); Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Dogwood (Cornus); Cotoneaster (Cotoneaster)|
|Care||Grows easily in average, well-drained soils. Best flowering and fruiting in full sun. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Blooms on new wood; prune in winter to shape and encourage new growth.|
