Hi there, I looked to see if there's an ongoing thread for plant IDs, but didn't see it. I'll admit to not looking too hard.

Anyone know what this is? It's prolific on our property, and I'm hoping it is useful!

It resembles American Beautyberry though without leaves it is hard to tell.  Also the berries look at little bigger in the photo.

The article points to a relative that looks more like yours -Callicarpa dichotoma, Early Amethyst Beautyberry:

Anne, thanks! That looks right; I'll be on the lookout for the leaves, now that I know where this grows.
