Callicarpa Pearl Glam® Description
Pearl Glam® beautybush (Callicarpa sp.) truly lives up to its name, with dramatic dark purple foliage, bright white flowers, and thousands of orchid-pink berries in autumn. The color combination looks beautiful all season long, but is especially stunning among the reds and yellows of autumn. Most beautybush selections have plain green foliage, but the purple leaves of this special Proven Winners selection set it apart. It also has an upright habit that saves space compared to conventional varieties. Outstanding deer resistance!

Soil: Beautybush is tolerant of a wide range of soil and tolerates drought once established (after 1-2 seasons in the ground).
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day).
Water: Moderate water is all that's required
Space: min. 5' apart
Fertilizing: Little fertilizer is needed. If little new growth emerges in spring, a bit of granular rose fertilizer can help it rebound more quickly.
Winterizing: A 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch is a good idea in winter, especially in colder parts of its range. Leave plant intact over winter.
Maintenance: Wait until new growth begins to emerge in spring to determine whether or not pruning is required. Plant may experience some dieback in cold climates, so cut above where new growth is emerging. May be pruned in spring in warm climates as well since it blooms and fruits on new wood.
