Callicarpa bodinieri 'Profusion' (Beauty Bush)

Zone: 6 - 9
Natural Range: Western China
Soil:  Moist, humus rich, well drained
Light: Sun, part sun
Height: 5' - 10'

Attributes:  Deciduous.  Lilac flowers in summer, violet - purple fruit in fall and early winter.  Leaves turn colors in fall.

Notes:  The main attraction is the stunning fall display of fruit, and especially when the foliage has dropped.  The more sun this tree receives the better the fall color.  The first time I saw this Callicarpa was in the gardens at the Woodland Park Zoo in seattle WA.  The other great but passed over planting is at the Washington Park Arboretum.

Companion plants:  Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diablo', Aralia, Cornus
