Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Imagine luscious, plump purple fruits in your garden in September. Not only are these new beauty berries from Kolster B.V. lovely shrubs in the garden all summer with their large, grass green leaves and dark stems, the beautiful thing is they form purple fruits suitable for cutting and jaw-dropping floral arrangements each year.  If you are not into cutting flowers and bringing them inside, they can decorate your mixed borders for months.

Another new color in Callicarpa, Lilac’s lightly colored fruits are destined for flower arrangements all over the world! Soft in color, with plentiful berries along every branch, this versatile shrub delivers months of color on a drought tolerant carefree plant.
