Woodlander's Mexican Beautyberry. The berries on this cultivar are a stunning raspberry red, making the fruit clusters resemble a humongous (is that a real word?) raspberry. Since this species is usually described as having black fruit, this selection may actually be a plant of garden origin. It is best to prune to the ground in late winter because it flowers and fruits on current seasons wood, and the more growth one can induce, the more color that one can enjoy in the fall. This is really one of the more outstanding plants for berry attraction. If mulched well in the winter, one can probably cheat on the zone map and grow it into zone 7.
