If you are looking for the perfect understory or woodland garden shrub, Texas native American beautyberry delivers. Its open growth habit is graceful, and the sparkling magenta berries that appear in the fall are dazzling and relished by birds. Make sure to give it room, though, because American beautyberry shines when it is allowed to grow and not be trimmed to fit the space. It makes the perfect backdrop for your garden.
