ABSTRACT
BEAUTY BERRY (Callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii) As its name suggests, this otherwise plain shrub boasts the loveliest of berries. Small and violet, they gather in clusters and have a metallic sheen that makes them look like coloured ball bearings. The birds are very suspicious of them so they tend to last well into winter, long after other berries have been gobbled up. The plant will grow in any rich, well-drained soil, but does best if it has plenty of light and air around it - it won't thrive in the middle of a busy border - though it does need shelter from strong winds.
