Callicarpa americana ‘Bonner Creek’
A more compact selection of the large loose deciduous shrub to 6’ with medium foliage. Small pinkish flowers lead to the eye-catching clusters of bright purple fruits that circle the stems. Light green foliage that turns yellow in fall. Does well in full sun or under a pine canopy. Very tolerant of dry conditions and the fruit serve as a wildlife moisture source during drought. As with many fire-evolved shrubs, cut back severely every few years.
