Hi Ginny. Although this plant is pretty and acts like a native, it is in fact Callicarpa dichotoma, a native to the Korea, China, Japan area. Still, a nice plant to have. For a similar native, plant a Callicarpa americana. The berries aren't as big, but the color stays long after dichotoma has faded. Also, the American version is tolerant to wet soils and grows taller. I have 3 Callicarpas (americana, dihotoma and bodinieri) and each has its own charms. Have a good Sunday. We have sunshine today, after 2 days of rain and a week of cloudy, damp, cool days.
