I want to know the growing habits of this variety of duranta.Does it grow fast, how high will it grow how dense will it grow. Australia considers it a weed, does this apply to my variety? Does it need pruning often. Can it tolerate shade in the winter? thanks

This variegated form has creamy-yellow margins around the one inch long serrated leaves. In mild climates this plant can be in flower nearly year round with flowers and fruit appearing at the same time. It does best in full sun with frequent deep watering and is hardy to about 20-25 ° F. All forms benefit from frequent selective pruning.
