More fruits than any other on the market!

Callicarpa Plump & Plentiful™ Giant Purple

Super huge clusters of giant purple fruits cover each branch in early autumn making this a lovely addition for any mixed border or cutting garden.

Imagine luscious, plump purple fruits in your garden in September. Not only are these new beautyberries from Kolster B.V. lovely shrubs in the garden all summer with their large, grass green leaves and dark stems, the beautiful thing is they form purple fruits suitable for cutting and jaw-dropping floral arrangements each year.  If you are not into cutting flowers and bringing them inside, they can decorate your mixed borders for months. You have to trust us when we say the fruit of this beauty berry is more plentiful than any other on record. We would have counted them, but it would have taken too long! Clusters of purple berries cover the branches in fall, offering several options for use. Cut the stems to make exciting flower arrangements, or simply enjoy them in your garden as the days become shorter and the nights begin to cool down.
