This picture is listed as Calycarpa americana with different colored
berries. I think this might not be Calycarpa americana but rather calycarpa
japonica. japonica definitely has slightly more white and purple/white
shades in berries. C. Americana does come in white berries but the
variation in berry color on same bush, to the best of my knowledge, is not Americana
but japonica. Probably impossible to tell without being there but wanted to see if others could tell.
