Can anyone identify this shrub which I keep seeing but have never seen before?
It's Callicarpa bodinieri, a lovely shrub
I've seen a few photo's of this recently so It's on my wish list.
They were selling these at GC, lovely, but didn't fancy what birds would deposit on conservatory.
Definitely callicarpa, blackcaps like the berries.
Have one on my wishlist too - been admiring one in a neighbours front garden for a couple of years. Tricky colour to fit with other stuff though so will probably have to put it on its own.
How about putting it with an orange berried pyracantha, or a yellow one?
That might work Gardenmaiden, particuarly the yellow one. I noticed a Mahonia in the background of the photo in the original post - another plant on my wish list!
