They are very hardy plants
Thank you fleurisa will just give it a little protection just in case kind regards
I have one in the front garden and one in the back garden. Whitecaps like the berries, they're the only birds I've seen on them so far.
the next shrub on my "i want that shrub" list is a callicarpa, so am pleased this thread came up.
I believe there is an evergreen variety, but i'm having difficulty in finding it. Does anybody have one, or is it a warmer climate variety? I would be happy with the deciduous one as the autumn leaf colours look quite stunning, but I just fancy an evergreen if i could get one.
I would be grateful for any info on this. Thanks.
Hi oldchippy, i've always thought that is the case, but have been told it's possible to get an evergreen variety. Not being convinced, that's why i posted this question, as i felt sure i would get the right answer from these knowledgeable people on here.
I'm glad you confirmed this for me as I have just returned from a local independent garden centre where I spent more than intended on an 8' (including the pot) Callicarpa Profusion, but it is such a lovely bushy shrub jam packed with berries that I could not come home without it!! I hope the state pension goes up in April, then I just might get another one to keep it company. Thanks.
Hi Norfolk dumpling you could try propergating a lower branch to make a new plant,my second one was a sport growing from the base,I'm sure you will look after it and it will return year after year but it will need to be kept under control as they can get quite big,I posted pictures of mine on G/W facebook.
I put one outside ten years ago into the border.but it was July .I live in a rural area very open , surrounded by fields.it has been alright.
