American Beautyberry is a 3' to 6' tall native perennial small shrub with a native distribution restricted to the southern states. The shrub produces axillary cluster of small pink or white flowers in spring and early summer and bright showy cluster of violet or magenta fruits in August and September.
To keep American beautyberry more compact you can prune its stems back close to ground level in March but wait until its third year so it is established.
Native Americans used the plant parts to treat such things as fevers, rheumatism, stomachaches, colic, and dysentery.

NEW ARRIVAL for 2024
Stratification of seeds is not required, but it will increase germination rates if they're cold-moist stratified for 60-90 days, then soaked in water for 24 hours. Sow seed 1/16" deep. Fall-sown seeds will likely do well too.
