Physical Description
Add a Word
Golden Dewdrop is a sprawling shrub or (infrequently) a small tree. It can grow to 18 feet (5.5 m) tall and can spread to an equal width. Mature specimens possess axillary thorns, which are often absent on younger specimens. Leaves are light green, elliptic to ovate, opposite, and grow up to 3 inches (8 cm) long. Showy light-blue or lavender flowers are in tight clusters located on terminal and axillary stems, blooming almost all year long. The fruits are small yellow berries (from which the name is derived), approximately one half inch (1 cm) in diameter. The leaves and berries of the plant are toxic, and are confirmed to have killed children, dogs and cats. However, songbirds eat the fruit without ill effects.

General Information

Duranta erecta is a shrub of the Verbenaceae family, commonly cultivated as an ornamental plant in tropical and semi-tropical gardens. Originally native to Central and South America and the Caribbean, it is widely naturalized throughout the tropics and has become an invasive species in Australia, China, South Africa and on several Pacific Islands.

Golden Dewdrop is native to the Americas, from Mexico and the West Indies south to Argentina in South America. There is some debate about whether the plant is native to Florida or an introduced species. In its natural state, it commonly grows in rocky or sandy coastal areas with full sun, or moister, disturbed sites inland. Prior to maturity, the plant will grow at a rate of half a meter per year.
