In my garden there is a tree named "紫式部 : Murasakishikibu". Since the colour of this tree's fruits are 紫 (murasaki: purple) this was named after that famous classic writer, I guess. In every autumn this tree bear beautiful fruits, but birds have never eaten them.
P.S. I found an entry about this tree in Wikipedia today (24. Oct.). In English it is "Beautyberry". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beautyberry. According to this site, "Japanese Beautyberry Callicarpa japonica, native to Japan, is also cultivated in gardens. It is called Murasakishikibu in Japanese, in honor of Murasaki Shikibu."
