An advanced hybrid between Callicarpa dichotoma and C. kwangtungensis. It gets the best from both parents with an upright form and purple-tinged foliage from C. kwangtungensis and early, prolific showy fruit from C. dichotoma. Puts on a spectacular show in the fall with glamorous bright violet pearls adorning dark purple foliage – jamming! A great Halloween plant.
