BEAUTYBERRY JAPANESE ISSAI
This beautyberry cultivar is a small, rounded, deciduous shrub which typically grows 2-4' tall and is primarily included in the landscape for its showy fall display of lilac-violet fruit. Long, arching, slender branches dip downward often to touch the ground. Clusters of small, pink to lavender flowers bloom in summer. Flowers are followed by clusters of lilac-violet fruits which ripen in September and put on their best show through October. Fruits persist beyond the point of leaf drop but not very far into winter. Green leaves turn yellow in fall. This cultivar primarily differs from the species by growing shorter, fruiting heavier and producing fruit at an earlier age ('Issai' means fruiting in early years). Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prune in early spring if needed. Flowers bloom on new wood.
