There is one call callicarpa americana Welch's Beauty

 But I can't find it on any UK sites, don't know if it's only available in the US. Apparently it's a native of the USA.

Hi RubyLeaf

The callicarpa you want to ask for at your garden centre is

Callicarpa dichotoma
(Purple beautyberry)

This is the purple one. Actually, the flowers are very insignificant, it's the berries in autumn that are so pretty.

Strange you should say that, no you are not alone, I thought the same too! A bit off, I thought, and I'm not even in the UK!

Remembrance Sunday

Posted: 10/11/2013 at 13:18

I watched the Parade on the BBC today and must admit it brought tears to my eyes to see all those hundreds of service men/women march past the Cenotaph, not to mention all the wounded. I think it's marvelous that the British remember this every year and I realise how very lucky we were to have escaped these terrible times!

Good Evening FORKERS

Hi there!

Have finally planted my two roses that have been waiting in large pots since Summer. Put a handfull of slow working organic fertilizer in each hole (horn shavings, don't know what that's called in English), so hope they do well. They'll get a dose of horse manure in Spring.

Hope your dinner goes smashingly well, Brumbull and that your guest give you good advice!
