Callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii ‘Profusion’
In full fruit this amazing shrub is an unforgettable sight! In early autumn the open arching branches are loaded with clusters of glowing purple berries. Once the leaves have dropped, it can not be passed without comment. Most beauty berries require more than one shrub to set fruit, but ‘Profusion’ is self-fertile and will always produce a reliable crop of gorgeous berries.
