Duranta repens, also known as duranta erecta, is an attractive bushy evergreen shrub or small tree with pretty light blue or lavender colored clusters of flowers that bloom almost all year. Native to Mexico and South America its common names include skyflower, golden dewdrop and pigeon berry. The genus name is in honor of Castore Durante, a fifteenth-century Italian botanist, while the specific epithet erecta means "upright" in Latin, and repens "creeping". After flowering the plant produces profuse numbers of small round yellow or yellow-orange berries with new flowers often appearing as the fruit ripens, making a striking combination of colors. Because the skyflower blooms throughout the year, they are one of the few flowers that attract both hummingbirds and butterflies (and also larger birds which may feed on the berries), although the fruit is toxic to humans and animals.
