Beautyberry in bloom

Finally, after three years, our American beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) is blooming! That means we'll have beautiful purplish berries in the fall! I can't wait!

In East Texas we call these french mulberries. Glad to know what they truly are. I watched the blue birds eat all the berries off ours in the flower bed last year...pretty neat to see how much they enjoyed them. After reading this I went out where we had transplanted ours and sure enough it is blooming also. I do so enjoy your blog.

My goodness, you are far too kind! Thank you for the nice compliment. And yes, that is another common name for the species--French mulberry. I just got finished researching the shrub for a mini magazine article.
