Question: Want to plant for foundation border. I am not familiar with care of diseases of this plant.
(Offered for sale in the Clermont, Florida store)

Answer: I'll be as comprehensive as I can:
A tropical Jamaican shrub, Duranta 'Cuban Gold' shines in containers, baskets and borders, holding its dazzling chartreuse color even in the toughest of summer heat and humidity. Occasional sprays of blue flowers are followed by attractive clusters of golden non-edible berries.

An exceptionally versatile plant, 'Cuban Gold' is well-branched and low-growing, and useful as edging or for containers. Great tropical shrub in warm areas. Plants perform well in full sun to partial shade. Grows quickly in any decent soil. Allow to dry down between waterings.

Common Name: Golden Dewdrop

Mature Height: 8-12"

Flowering: Occasional sprays of blue flowers

Spacing: 6-12"

There are no significant insect or disease problems with Duranta.

Best wishes with your garden!
