Colorful Beautyberries

Colorful Beautyberries

Beautyberries are one of Florida’s best native plants.  This shrub attracts both birds and butterflies, and the purple color of the berries in Fall is spectacular!  Although the berries are not tasty straight off the bush, they do make a wonderful jelly or sauce (recipe is at:  http://www.authenticflorida.com/articles/what-to-eat/time-to-make-authentic-florida-beautyberry-jelly/). 

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
