Callicarpa Japonica

This is another tree, which has just come into my possession. It’s a Callicarpa Japonica or Japanese Beautyberry. This is a species I have been looking for, for some time. At 46cm high, it is a little bigger than the trees I normally go for but the taper and movement in the trunk of this specimen are pretty special. The first picture shows the tree as I acquired it.

And the second picture shows the tree after an initial trim and tidy up. Looking forward to the purple berries in the autumn
