  1. Thanks Darla! The butterfly made it easy – just sat there posing for me on the butterfly bush.

    Tina – I would love to see more self seeding of my beautyberry. I've made several cuttings though so I do have extras! 😉

  2. I love Beautyberry, have a new (to me) variety in our new garden. Callicarpa dichotoma 'Issai'. Stays smaller and supposed to produce more berries. Had Callicarpa americana and japonica in Seaford, both get really large. Will be really happy if this one stays the 2-4' it is advertised to be.

  3. Lovely pictures, particularly the butterfly! They never stay still long enough for me to capture them 🙂
