Callicarpa 'Summer Snow'


This beauty berry is more than just a star of the autumn garden. Summer Snow has variegated leaves that are handsomely splashed with white and held on dark pinkish-red stems. The foliage sets off the clusters (cymes) of small, pink flowers that bloom in the leaf axils in summer. In fall the stems are adorned with beautiful clusters of shiny, purple-blue berries.
