This small tree (woody shrub?) has been in my garden area even before the land was cleared to make the “garden” – this year the rains have caused it to break out into a zillion white berries. The gardener who put in our stone work called it an “ornamental” and I am curious, are there white beauty berries? Can I prune it and when?

    I’m thinking Callicarpa japonica or Callicarpa dichotoma. An Asian variety, unfortunately. Beautyberry can be treated like any other shrub. Coppicing or pollarding is often practiced with this shrub… February or March is a good time for a heavy pruning. Cut the fruited limbs and bring them in the house… for an arrangement.
