Name that plant!



I took this a few weeks ago and keep meaning to try to identify it. This is a lovely bush that is growing in the shrubs/bushy areas along the dirt road to our house. I thought it was some kind of wild thing but then I saw one in the landscaped area between two roads some time ago. Anyone know what it is? It's lovely and unique!

This is a beauty berry bush, or callicarpa. I want one too! I have seen them growing wild in NC.
