If you remember, in July it was suggested to take a look at the Callicarpa Americana — otherwise know as the American Beauty Berry.
This shrub is found as you enter the Community Building on the Medford Campus in the garden on the left hand side of the entry, as well as other areas in the Arboretum.
In July, the small pink flowers were in full bloom, and now have yielded clusters of distinctly colored purple berries. These berries will provide a wonderful source of foods for birds in the fall and into the winter season.
One of the joys of the Arboretum is the many changes that occur through the seasons.
