Callicarpa Dichotoma or American Blackbeauty Help - Zone 5

houstworksApril 26, 2010

I read that Callicarpa Americana which grows in Zone 7 may be good as a tick and mosquito repellant.

Callicarpa Americana would this have the same effect as Callicarpa that can grow in Zone 5 where I live?

We are having dreadful tick season this year!
