Introduce Callicarpa Profusion to your outdoor space; it’s a hardy and attractive shrub that boasts clusters of amethyst-purple berries through the autumn and into winter, starting out as starry violet flowers produced every summer.

The leaves unfurl from spring on this tough shrub as bronze-purple and turn a deep green as the season turns into summer. In summer the deep green leaves turn a plum-purple before falling and revealing a striking silhouette of branches in the winter.

The beautiful rare purple berries keep on the stems from autumn and into winter where they add welcome colour to the winter garden. The berries also provide a good source of bird food to berry-eating garden birds like winter-visiting waxwings.

Useful Tip:

Underplant your Callicarpa shrub with bulbs like snowdrops and daffodils. The intense colours highlight the stems in winter before the leaves of your Callicarpa appear once again.
