Callicarpa bodinieri seed

This superb species has been much improved by the introduction of the variety “”Profusion”” which is believed to have been introduced from a nursery in the southern USA. Grown primarily for its stunning unusually coloured berries which can appear almost fluorescent; it is an excellent addition to any garden where some autumn colour is required. “”Profusion”” will produce an excellent crop of berries as a single plant but a small improvement can be achieved by planting in groups. The leaves are also attractive in both Spring and Autumn. A great favourite with Flower arrnagers. This plant can be used in a mixed planting or as a stand alone specimen in the garden or can easily be grown in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 12-14 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost.
