There are over 160 species in this genus of shrubs. They are native to many parts of the world, both tropical and temperate.

Beautyberry shrubs are mostly deciduous plants with opposite leaves that exhibit small pink, blue or violet flowers in late summer. These are followed in autumn by clusters of bright purple or white berries along the stem. The species from the tropical regions tend to be evergreen in nature.
