About Duranta Plant
The Duranta plant may reach up to 10 feet in height and flowers profusely from summer until the first heavy frost. The shrub-like plant is multi-stemmed and the branches are somewhat droopy. The stems may have sharp spines. Orchid-like flowers may be light blue to light purple in color.
Duranta plant is an extremely easy-to-grow shrub or annual. These plants thrive in well-drained, moist, fertile soils. They are also very tolerant of sandy soils. In containers, give these plants a standard, well-drained potting mix, and add some organic fertilizer for their good growth.
Some Duranta plants develop loads of yellow, ball-shaped fruit which have ornamental value. Full sun is best for these shrubs, as they will have better habit and won't get loose as they would in the shade. Flower production will also be much better in full sun. Keep these plants well-watered.
