Callicarpa ‘Profusion’ is a great improvement on its common predecessor , fruiting well on its own, with large packed clusters of the rich purple berries in mid-autumn, overlapping with the golden purple leaf tints and then they remain alone on the branch after the leaves have fallen. The young foliage is bronze-purple, and makes great material for vases, as do bare branches laden with berries. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow Callicarpa ‘Profusion’ in moist but well-drained soil in full sun or dappled shade, ideally where you can see it well and appreciate its autumn beauty.
Grows to approx 2.5metres and spreads around 2metres eventually.
