The beautyberry bush produces long wands of purple berries that often have a metallic sheen, quite a sight for the fall garden. The American beautybush grows 3 to 8 feet high and is reliably hardy in USDA Zones 7 to 11. The Japanese beautybush is 4 to 6 feet tall and wide, hardy in USDA Zones 5 to 8. Both types can be cut back severely in the spring if necessary. The flowers — usually pinkish to white — form on new wood.
