Japanese BeautyberryCallicarpa dichotoma 'Issai'
The Japanese beautyberry is much like the American Beautyberry except it is much smaller and easier to maintain.
As its leaves emerge in the spring, berries will start to cover the stems of this plant. As the berries grow larger, the weight starts to weep the branches really making this plant unique.
During the summer months, the Issai's berries start to turn lilac purple. As fall aproaches and leaves start to drop, the colors serve great interest! Fall is the best time for this plant to really show off. Its definately a must have for any garden or landscape.
Plant as a specimen, in masses, or in a hedge. Flowers bloom on new wood. Expect about 3-4 feet when mature.

Doing very poorly
I purchased this plant in June and planted it immediately upon arrival, following the instructions. It is in full sun, but has been doing very poorly. No matter how much I water it, the leaves always look droopy and dehydrated. I keep hoping it will catch on. Still hoping...
Love my Issai
Received my Issai beautyberry shrub today and am very pleased. Planted as soon as it came and it came in excellent condition. The soil was damp, no broken branches and it’s a good size. I would order from Planting Tree again. Also many sites are either out of stock or do not carry this shrub. Hard to find this particular beautyberry at nurseries.
These bushes are doing extremely well in my yard in Northeastern Ohio.Being surrounded by many large trees, I was concerned about getting enough sun, but they are thriving along our stone wall.George in Ohio
