Duranta is a fast-growing tropical shrub with beautiful blue flowers. Flowers develop into golden berry clusters, giving it the nickname Golden Dewdrop. The lavender-blue flowers appear in loose clusters, and both berries and blossoms are often seen on a plant. Flowers have a mild sweet vanilla-like smell. Duranta requires frequent pruning to make a bushy plant, especially when used as a hedge, and needs full sun to bloom well. Use as a basket plant, a mounding bush or train into a standard, this plant will give the color deep purple new meaning. As free flower as any Duranta it covers itself in dripping chains of bloom. Each petal in the flower is defined by a light lavender boarder and marked by a white eye. This zone 9+ stunning sun lover will bring months of gorgeous color to any garden, sun-room or greenhouse.
