Brazilian Sky Flower


This plant is similar to Duranta repens, but it is smaller and more compact. And unlike Duranta repens it is thornless and has larger leaves. It makes a great addition to landscapes for its beautiful show of lavender-blue flowers followed by bright orange berries on clusters to one foot in length. Plant for a medium sized hedge or in a foundation planting in mild winter climate zones.
