I'm happy to hear that C. americana survives for you!  I have 
C. americana var. lactea (the white-fruiting form) from my nursery
stock and wasn't sure how it would fare...  

I have a corner of my Champaign-Urbana zone 5b yard with a Davidia
involucrata and a Poncirus trifoliata (hardy orange) that have been
there for five years; I think the Callicarpa will join them.
