The chuhin Callicarpa that I acquired earlier this year has done very well over the summer. This is a reminder of how it looked after an initial cutback at the start of June.
The cutback in June has been beneficial in creating a lot of new shoots and increasing the ramification. This is how its looking at the moment (Mid September)
The berries which give this tree its common name of Japanese Beautyberry are starting to form, although most seem to be at the top of the tree at the moment. I will put it into the greenhouse now to extend the growing season as long as possible in the hope that it will continue to flower and produce lots more before the end of the year.
