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 the current season’s growth, so in late winter remove about a third of the oldest stems or lop the whole plant low to the ground. In coldest regions, may freeze to the ground but comes back from roots.Callicarpa dichotoma
