Absolutely Gorgeous
Reviewed By: Mrs. B (Cincinnati, OH)
"We ordered 5 of these late last spring. They were small but healthy when they arrived. We planted them Memorial Day weekend. Ten weeks later (after record 90+ temps) they are about 24"" x 24"", covered with pink blossoms and absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait to see the berries in a few weeks!"

Unexpected beauty
Reviewed By: Tere (Fayettevillle, OH)
I had never heard of this plant when I bought it from Gurneys. I received a nice 3 foot plant that was leafing. What an unexpected joy! The foliage is light and airy. The berries are a beautiful purple and it's fruiting in October in Ohio. I tried other internet nurseries recently. Big mistake. I'm only ordering Gurneys plants from now on. Thank you Gurneys!

Beautiful Berry
Reviewed By: Dee (Albion, IL)
"I had to purchase this beautiful shrub. I first saw it at a nursery and when my Mom passed away last year my in-laws gave me a gift certificate to buy and plant something in memory of my Mom. I chose this big gorgeous shrub but never got to see it bloom again the next spring after moving (divorce). These were not a disappointment even though much smaller. I got two and just 4-5 months later are about 2 feet high and two feet wide already. The little tiny flowers are already turning into the little purple ""beauty"" berries. Would definately recommend!"

Reviewed By: Becca Gephardt (Baltimore, MD)
I am so excited my purple beautyberry bushes came yesterday. The plants look great and I can't wait to get them in the ground... A friend of mine had one years ago and it was so pretty... I can't wait to see the purple berries in the fall.

stunning!!
Reviewed By: mai (hopewell junction, new york)
I absolutely am in love with this shrub.It is stunning in the garden. I have two of them and it was the best purchase I ever made.Any friend that stops by and sees the shrubs always ask what they are and where did I get them because they want them.I also love the fact that they grow neatly. I pretty much leave them alone to do there own thing. Extremely low maintenance plant so if you are thinking about it, don't. Just buy them....you won't regret it.

Really Purple!
Reviewed By: Gail P. (Stoughton, MA)
I really like this plant. I purchased 3 of them and glad I did. At the end of the season when it drops it's leaves, you see these beautiful purple berries. They don't last too long because the birds like them too.
