It is Callicarpa americana, common name Beautyberry, a deciduous shrub native to the southern United States. The berries appear in late summer/fall and are attractive to birds and deer.

    Often called "American" beauty berry. It can be invasive, but colorful. Deer do not care for the branches and foliage so in our area of the Piney Woods ( E TX ) it is the dominant understory shrub. Dec 25, 2020 at 16:07
