Product Overview

Sense these are fresh cuttings that are cut to order, Star will send you 3 for one low price. They're about 5-7 inches in length. We highly suggest using a root hormone powder or gel to encourage these to take root. The pricing on these is deliberately lower than our competitors. If you know of someone who has a better offer, please let us know so we can compensate.

American Beautyberry has a history in ethnobotany, despite the fact that people often may pass it and not even know about its history. The raw berries are not meant to be consumed in excess due to their astringent nature, which can lead to stomach cramps. The berries are carefully used by some in Jams and wine. In Folk medicine, the roots of American Beautyberry were utilized as an insect repellant. It produces a phytochemical called callicarpenal, which is also suggested by laboratory experiments to repell mosquitos.

Occasionally we have some rooted, so we may surprise you. Email us here . (They sell fast)
