Duranta

Also known as pigeon berry, sky flower and golden dewdrop, The Duranta bush (Duranta erecta) is a species of flowering shrub in the verbena family Verbenaceae, native from Mexico to South America and the Caribbean. It is widely cultivated as an ornamental plant in tropical and subtropical gardens throughout the world, and has become naturalized in many places. This appealing, flowering shrub is well suited for border areas and living hedges.


Duranta is a very showy shrub with colorful, alluring flowers ranging from pale blue to lavender and bright golden berries. Although this plant is known to attract butterflies and hummingbirds, the leaves and berries of this evergreen are fatally toxic to children and small animals. Duranta is a moderate to fast grower that can grow as tall as 8 to 15 feet, with its ornate flowers blossoming nearly year round.


Often used as a small street tree in Southern Florida, Duranta can also be utilized as a specimen shrub or in a hedge or windbreak. It also makes a fast-growing screen and is often grown in a planter on the patio. This shrub does best in well-drained average soil and full to partial sun and thrives best in well-drained average soil and attains its optimum size in any kind of well-drained soil with an acidic, neutral or slightly alkaline pH, as long as it’s rich in organic matter. It has an adaptable nature and will tolerate light to moderate sea spray in coastal zones with dry weather. An easy care plant that is rarely troubled by diseases, the Duranta bush is however susceptible to a variety of bugs, including scale insects, mealy bugs and nematodes.


With its alluring blooms and low-key maintenance, the Duranta makes for a lovely addition to any landscape or butterfly garden.
