I am in Essex and have a beautiful Callicarpa which is covered in berries at the moment. It's dark outside at the moment but will post a picture of the full shrub tomorrow. I have only got a close up pic. of some of the berries (below).
I love my bush which has grown a great deal this year. I bought one for my elderly neighbour next door as I thought my bush would berry better with another bush for pollination purposes, but I can't say it makes any difference. It is a low maintenance shrub which glows at this time of year and I wouldn't be without it. The berries persist for months and are often commented on - the bush is in my front garden in full sun.
