Notes:

This is a volunteer plant, a shrub that is about 2 1/2 feet tall at present. I have waited to see if it will flower or if an app could ID it but so far I’ve not found an answer. The berries have recently appeared and have begun to ripen. If this is an undesirable plant, I want to remove it before it begins dropping its berries.

    Thank you, Laura. I think you’ve nailed it. As a transplant from Missouri, I am learning more about plants growing in the Southeast.

    Looks like a species of beautyberry (Callicarpa). Maybe the native ‘American beautyberry ( C. americana)? According to sources, this is a desirable plant. Copy & paste the included link below for further information. Best wishes!
