Wine Spritzer Beautyberry is a beautiful variegated deciduous shrub native to Japan. The colorful leaves have a white base with green and cream splashes connected by pink petioles. Wine Spritzer Beautyberry has clusters of pale lavender-pink flowers that bloom in summer and attract bees and butterflies, then give way to bursts of bright purple fruits.  Best foliage color in full sun, but some shade promotes drought tolerance.
