Duranta Plants


Zone Mentor, OH | cherylgorham added on August 13, 2017 | Answered

Hi. I purchased a Duranta at the start of the spring and fell in love with the delicate flowering branches. I live in Ohio and as you can imagine, the climate is varying and our winters can be harsh. As I said, I love this shrub/tree and have seen it classified as both an annual and perennial. Can I do something to save it for years to come or was this just a summer romance?

Duranta is a tropical plant and will not survive an Ohio winter. However, you have some options including bringing it inside if you have a large container. Here is this website's info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/duranta/care-of-duranta-plants.htm
