Callicarpa Japonica 小紫(コムラサキ) “Japanese Beautyberry”

They are so striking, purple berries in winter. I remember their tiny, creamy purple flowers in summer and the sound of humming bees around the bushes. The green berries appeared and the colour has been changed gradually. One of plants make me feel good since I stopped commuting by car.

Native plant of Japan, China and Korea.

紫の実がコンクリートの路地に良く映える。夏の白紫の小さな花、蜂のぶんぶんの音も覚えている。その後緑の実が付き、だんだんと色が着いてムラサキになった。車を使わなくなって良いことの一つ。冬の雨の後は特に鮮やかに目立つ。日本に行ったらいつか紫式部をみられるところへ行ってみたいと思う。日本、中国、韓国原産
