Callicarpa – Pearl Glam® – Beautyberry – Callicarpa x
Dead-Heading Not Necessary
Fun Facts Callicarpa is believed to repel mosquitoes, and the North American species, C. americana, has been used this way through the South throughout history.
Pearl Glam beautyberry does not need a pollinator to set fruit; one plant is sufficient for a good crop. Prune, if desired, in early spring, and remove any dead wood at that point as well. Plant may experience some dieback each year in colder zones, but it will resprout from the ground and still flower and fruit that year.
