Southern Gardening: Tropical Duranta adds interest to area gardens
A native of the tropical regions of the Caribbean and Central and South America, the Duranta is sure to generate interest in your landscape.
Duranta is commonly called pigeon berry, and it has an arching growth habit with bluish flowers. It produces golden fruit that can feed our feathered friends.
The native plant can reach small-tree status, growing up to 25 feet tall. That’s too large for many of our Mississippi gardens and landscapes.
