American beautyberry flowers

American Beautyberry Flowers 5896

When I was in Bastrop County on June 4, I was surprised to see an American beautyberry bush, Callicarpa americana, flowering away. I say surprised because I associate this shrub with locations near water, so all the rain we had in the spring must have served in lieu of a creek or pond.

If you’d like a reminder of why this species is called beautyberry, take a look back at a post from 2013.
