Noteworthy Characteristics

Grown for its summer flowers and ornamental fruit, this selection may prove more compact than the species, growing upright in habit with a spread about half the width (8-12') and a height of 15' or so. In late spring and summer, cascading clusters of 3/4 inch wide tubular flowers are an intense violet-blue with a white picotee edge along the flared petal tips. As with the species the flowers are followed by wonderfully contrasting orange-yellow berries


Where hardy outdoors, Sapphire Showers Duranta is useful as a colorful accent, corner plant, espalier, small tree, background, tall hedge, or in containers. Where not winter hardy, it can be used outdoors as an annual in beds or as a container plant that can be overwintered indoors or in a greenhouse when low temperatures drop below 40 degrees.
