Fall 2020 Super Plants are LA Natives

2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the Louisiana Super Plants program. This year we celebrate by adding two true native woody plants: American beautyberry and our state tree, bald cypress.

American beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) is a deciduous, native shrub of North America and can be found growing naturally in the Southeast along the edges of forests, in low rich bottomlands, at the edges of swamps, in piney woods and in coastal woodlands. Growing 4 to 8 feet tall by 4 to 6 feet wide, it is an open, airy and loose spreading shrub bearing elliptic-shaped, light green to yellow leaves with toothed margins.
