Sky Flower Patio Tree/Duranta repens

Anonymous added on June 14, 2015 | Answered

I have the above named plant and would like to plant it in a 12 inch wide planter on the north side of the house. It would be somewhat protected in winter. Is on a drip water supply. I also have a Eugenia groomed with balls on the branches. I would like to plant in the same area. Would this be okay or do they need to be in full sun? I do have active deer in the area so against the house could put a mesh deer fencing easily to protect them. This is a lattice back covering and under deck area not against the house itself.

The duranta needs full to part sun. It's also likely going to need overwintering inside. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/duranta/care-of-duranta-plants.htm

Eugenia do best in full sun, though may tolerate partial shade in warmer climates. Also, they cannot tolerate temps below 30 degrees F., so this too may need overwintering inside.
