Callicarpa dichotoma 'Spring Gold'

Beautyberry

Plant Type:

DECIDUOUS SHRUBS

Callicarpa dichotoma 'Spring Gold' - This version of Beautyberry displays bright yellow new growth - not a screaming, audacious tone; rather, is a soft yellow well-employed in beautiful contrast to green garden companions. The shrub's color settles back to bright green in summer. 'Spring Gold' forms typical, abundant summer axillary brush-like flowers in a lavender-pink shade where petioles meet stem. It is the copious clustered purple berries which follow put on quite a show. They are alluring in late season. Beautyberry is an easy-going shrub that blooms on new wood so it can be pruned in late winter annually to keep it lower and bushier if that befits your landscape. Full to mostly sunny siting planted in fertile, draining soil will keep it happy. Those autumn berries often accompany decent fall foliage color. Coupled with late blooming daylilies, warm season grasses and/or hardy mums... well, you've got yourself a spectacular fall show. Established pot grown shrub from cutting.
