The American beautyberry (Calliparpa americana) is a Florida native plant that does more than just look pretty. Before the berries are formed there are lilac-colored flowers on the beautyberry that attract butterflies and bees. The seeds of the beauty berries are in tightly packed clusters inside the berries, and these berries also provide food for many bird species. It is also the larval host for spring azure butterflies and snowberry clearwing moths. The American beautyberry can be found growing throughout the basins in Hundred Acre Hollows.
