  3. Rupali says:

    Ah, I love the colour of berries.

  4. Christina says:

    Lovely combination Eliza, your climate really provided some amazing autumn colour.

  5. Anne says:

    The colour of the berries is striking – almost artificial, like clusters of beads.

  6. Great backdrop for your beautyberry–it really makes the fall colors pop.

    What colours!!!!

  8. Summer Daisy says:

    Colourful and pretty โ™ฅ

    The purple colour is so beautiful – it pushes the boundaries of what we think of as natural, like the bright blue of some gentians or meconopsis. I wonder if it makes birds and other creatures more or less likely to eat them? The berries do stand out against the foliage better than red ones would.

      According to wildlife sources, this native is popular with a great number of birds and mammals. Most berries in my yard don’t make it past December, so I can attest to that!

  10. Laurie Graves says:

    Yes, yes! You’ve captured autumn.

  11. natalyadrian says:

    Lovely autumn colors!

  12. Heather says:

    Whoa! Those are vibrant!

  13. Striking colour. What’s the berry?

  14. Kris P says:

    I love those Callicarpa berries. Unfortunately, I’ve never seen the plants for sale here even though some species should tolerate our conditions.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      They are something, aren’t they? We are at the northernmost point of their range. I think of them as being more from the Southeast US. But now that I look the genus up, there are a ton from Asia and tropics. I wonder if you could mail order from a nursery?

  20. Kathy Sturr says:
