Grow Callicarpa bodinieri in fertile, well drained soil in sun or light dappled shade. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil.
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young beauty berry plants are fully established. Prune Callicarpa in early spring if needed, lightly cutting back to a healthy pair of buds to achieve the desired shape. With mature shrubs, prune a quarter of the oldest stems to ground level to promote replacement growth. Callicarpa shrubs tolerate hard pruning well and can be cut back to a low framework if they are outgrowing their allotted space. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in spring.
