You will love a fountaining shrub called Beautyberry. Latin Calycarpa japonica, variety "Murasakishikibu" In September it begins with small to inconspicuous lavendar blossoms along every bending stem, to the ground. As flowers fade, berries begin to form. They are a perfect magenta, totally arresting. The variety name is in honor of a Japanese woman, Murasaki Shikibu (last name, first name),novelist, who wrote "The Tale of Genji," in the 17th C. I think. The Japanese love this shrub so much they named it after this lovely, talented woman. I think of her when I look at the plant. OK now it's January. Except for one mockingbird who ate a lot of the berries a week ago, it stands intact until all the hollies, everything, is eaten, then the birds clear those stems! This is one of two shrubs I have which cause remark. The other one, a Vitex, is close to the road and actually stops traffic. Its blooms are gone by cold weather, however.
