Plant Description

Native to most of the eastern states, American beautyberry is a large shrub whose claim to fame it its bright magenta purple berry clusters in the fall. Its 6’+ arching stems will be laden with the brilliant fruiting display for several months until birds eventually pick them clean. But a pink fruited form was discovered in Texas and was named ‘Welch’s Pink’ after its discoverer. ‘Welch’s Pink’ has pastel pink fruits and does not get quite as large as the purple type. Otherwise, cultural conditions are the same – sun to light shade, average to moist soil, drought tolerant once established. If brilliant purple isn’t your color preference, then ‘Welch’s Pink’ is the beautyberry for you.
