Callicarpa bodinieri (Bodinier's beautyberry) is a species of flowering plant in the genusCallicarpa of the familyLamiaceae, native to West and Central China. Growing to 3 m (10 ft) tall by 2.5 m (8 ft) wide, it is an upright deciduousshrub with dark green leaves turning red in autumn (fall). In midsummer, small lilac flowers are produced in the leaf axils. But it is grown in gardens primarily for its small, decorative purple berries in tight clusters in autumn. While the berries are not poisonous, they are very bitter. Wildlife will not eat them until there are no other available food sources. This species is more tolerant of cold than C. americana (American beautyberry).
