Summer Snow® Beauty Berry

Callicarpa dichotoma 'Summer Snow'

SKU
09292
A new and sprightly variegated form of Beauty Berry with creamy white-margined foliage. Axillary clusters of pink lavender flowers in spring result in crops of rose-purple berries in autumn. For enhanced berry production, plant another of the same species nearby to serve as a pollenizer. Lovely in the mixed border for months of colorful foliage.
