American Beautyberry is a Texas Native plant that I love. I have several in my yard but the one that is doing the very best is on the east side of my house. This is an understory plant you see along forest edges, near creeks and wet areas. It does love some moisture and some shade. I have seen it planted in full sun but I am sure it would need a lot of water in that setting. Even along shaded fence lines as I am driving around Texas, I see it drooping in periods of little rain. The beautiful fuchsia colored, pink, purple berries are edible but I prefer to leave them for the birds. Contact me for FREE seeds or possibly seedling plants.
