Native to Southeast Asia, these plants are sometimes known as a beauty berry for the stunning purple berries they produce in the autumn and winter. A variety called ‘Profusion’ it will fruit on its own it and has been awarded the RHS’s prestigious Award of Garden Merit. Pretty flowers in the summer and the jewel-like purple berries in the autumn and winter make these plants a superb addition to the garden.

Callicarpa are quite easy-going and are happy in either full sun or a partially shaded spot in the garden. You can plant them out in the garden immediately to establish themselves over the winter, or if you prefer, keep them outside in their pot this season and then plant out next spring. They like moist but well-drained, neutral to acidic soil.

Whilst in a pot, your Callicarpa will need regular watering especially if we are going through a dry spell. Other than that, they just need a light prune in the spring to reshape them, and they will benefit from mulch at the start of the growing season with a well-rotted compost or manure if you have it.

Problem Solving:

If summer foliage starts to yellow in it may be that the soil is too alkaline, try using a neutral to acidic soil instead. Otherwise Callicarpa are fairly resistant to disease and pests.
