The Beautyberry pictured above is a small to medium size shrub. The blooms are small but interesting. Bloom time is in spring followed by berries that remain green until early fall when they turn a brilliant purple. Beuatyberry has yellow foliage in the fall before leaf drop as it is a deciduous shrub. The berries remain on the stems after the leaves drop providing winter interest.
