Not everything in the garden is edible and I’m making an effort to incorporate more ornamental flowers. Duranta has been around for a few years. It’s part of the verbena family. The one I have is a tree growing in a pot facing west against a wall. That’s hot. Blooming continues summer through fall. Once the flowers are finished, yellow berries come in. The deciduous plant takes a break in the winter.
Duranta is a perfect choice in zone 9.
