What a beauty the Callicarpa Bodinieri is. This shrub always catches my eye in winter as these purple berries pop in the grey winter sky. A great pick for a Decemeber Flora Friday.

so pretty you blog is great it takes the reader right into the garden
Love your blog and your pics!
Did you know that Callicarpa Bodinieri leaves make for an excellent all natural mosquito repellent?
I did learn that during a wild edibles walk I attended a few months ago here in Florida…amazing all the ‘hidden’ properties our native plants have, no? :)
I love the color of Beautyberry. Even tried to grow it, but alas, it’s too warm.
What a wonderful shot of the beautyberry! Happy Holidays.
Wow – lucky YOU for being able to grow such an awesome plant! I tried once, but like Kat said above, it’s too warm here. Otherwise my front garden would be packed with these beauties!! Happy New Year!
Yeah that’s a very good picture. I have been thinking about growing beauty berry in my landscape, and now I just might. Besides the vibrant colors this plant provides in winter, its also a good food source for birds.
Hi Stevie, those are too wonderful! The color and yes, profusion of berries is so cheering to humans and wildlife alike. May you and yours have the best of years in 2010! :-)
Pretty picture, I am thinking about getting Beauty berry in my garden! Not because of how pretty it is but because it attracts birds and I love birds. I have a humming bird feeder I just put outside, I am waiting for the hummingbirds to come! Does anybody know how long it takes hummingbirds to go to your feeder or find it?
