Deciduous, Shrubs, Decorative fruit or berries
These graceful shrubs with arching branches are cultivated for their pleasing fruit display. Small lilac or pink flowers in summer are followed by tight clusters of little, round, violet to purple fruits that persist well into winter. Effective in woodland gardens or massed in shrub borders. Bloom and fruit occur on current season’s growth, so in late winter remove about a third of oldest stems or lop whole plant low to ground. In coldest regions, may freeze to ground but comes back from roots.Callicarpa bodinieri
