Duranta repens


Golden Dewdrop, Pigeon berry, Duranta repens

A large erect shrub growing to a height of 1-3 meters, with straggling and drooping branches.  Flowers have a mild sweet vanilla-like scent, fruit is a cluster of  bright orange-yellow berries, fleshy, and slightly poisonous.  Cultivated as an ornamental, usually as hedge or fence screen.

The flowers take the tears of weeping night, and give them to the sun for the day's delight.

Hi Luna, I have one lush plant of this, and it never fails to interest me especially because the butterflies are always there. It is synonymous with Duranta erecta.
