of the Month

White Duranta (Duranta erecta ‘Alba’)

August 8, 2017 Back to Picks >

The Cockrell Butterfly Center’s selection of an outstanding white version of duranta. Long blooming, root hardy, grows 4’-8’h x 4’w, but can be pruned regularly to maintain at desired height. Blooms clusters are bright white- spring through fall & it also produces yellow berries that birds enjoy. Prefers full sun, but can take partial shade. This is a butterfly magnet.
