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.

I don't recall having seen duranta before, but I really like that blue color. Now if I could only find space in my yard for one more plant!
