Seeing improvement!I live in Vero Beach, Florida, zone 9b, where I've grown "regular" beautyberry without any problems---so even though this cultivar is listed only to zone 8, I thought I'd give it a try. The plant languished in partial shade most of its first 4 months, but I have seen some improvement recently, and the tiny blooms look as though they are going to be showy, colorful berries. I have kept the plant in a 6" pot, premium container mix with Osmocote mixed in, Miracle-Gro applied once/week, bright shifting shade, no pest proplems.
I am cautiously optimistic going into fall.

Three months, zero colorPlanted in partial sun, with a drip line, room to grow and consistent attention, one survived. The branches have almost no buds, so the only value to the birds is using the branches to build nests.
