Callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii ‘Profusion’
A magnificent deciduous shrub with green leaves that have a purple tint before it colours in the autumn from green to a rosy shade. The real showstopper is the stunning metallic purple berries produced in an abundance in autumn, making it a focal point in the garden.
An absolutely favourite at this time of year; Callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii 'Profusion'
Plentiful clusters of bright purple berries from mid autumn - well deserving of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
@euphorbia it's not necessarily that you need more plants. It could be a number of things stopping the berries. These love sunshine so it might be position. They also don't need to be over fed or they'll get a little lazy with fruiting. It could also be pruning related. They flower very late and it's the flowers that lead to the fruit. February is the best time to prune, if you're doing it another time of year that could impact berry production. Hope one of those helps!
@hilliergardencentres - Thank you very much for the info. They are lovely! They look like they might be helpful for crushing & dying at least, but I certainly will accept your expertise on them. Thanks again! Glad they feed the birdies! 🌴🌺🐾
@harebell as long as it's not deep shade you should be ok. It prefers sun to partial shade but is also pretty hardy and can cope with north facing or exposed spots. So if there's a bit of sun (which helps the flowers grow in summer and in turn produces the amazing purple berries) you'll be fine.
