American Beauty Berry

September 2, 2016

It's American Beauty Berry's (Callicarpa americana) turn to shine!

Birds love the edible berries of this native, understory, durable, deciduous shrub, and we love how vibrant the berries are. Also, researchers have recently verified the effectiveness of the Native American tradition of using crushed leaves of these beauties (see what I did there?) to repel mosquitoes.
