Japan, Taiwan, Eastern China. Beautyberry shrubs are mostly grown for their ornamental berries that appear in the autumn. Many gardeners are familiar with the surprisingly vivid dark violet berries of Callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii 'Profusion'. Callicarpa japonica 'Leucocarpa' has yet another surprise. Its berries are bright white. We first saw it in a garden in Kyoto, Japan, in a dazzling display next to neighboring specimens with violet berries. Often the berries will persist into the late fall while the yellowing foliage is beginning to fall.
