Duranta ‘Sheena’s Gold,’ also known as Duranta erecta ‘Sheena’s Gold,’ is a cultivar of Duranta erecta, an evergreen shrub or small tree native to tropical regions of the Americas. Duranta ‘Sheena’s Gold’ is widely grown as an ornamental plant for its attractive golden foliage and its ability to add colour and texture to landscapes.

Appearance: Duranta ‘Sheena’s Gold’ is a compact, fast-growing shrub that can reach a height of 1 to 2m. It has a dense, bushy growth habit with arching branches.

Foliage: The most notable characteristic of Duranta ‘Sheena’s Gold’ is its striking golden-yellow foliage. The leaves are small, ovate to elliptical in shape, and have a bright golden-yellow colour. The vibrant foliage provides a beautiful contrast against the deep green stems and other plants in the landscape.

Flowers: Like other Duranta varieties, ‘Sheena’s Gold’ produces small, lavender-blue or purple flowers in clusters during the growing season. While the flowers are not the primary attraction of the plant, they do add some additional colour and interest.

Growth Requirements: Duranta ‘Sheena’s Gold’ thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. It is relatively drought-tolerant once established, but regular watering is beneficial, especially during dry periods.

Uses: Duranta ‘Sheena’s Gold’ is commonly used as a hedge, accent plant, or specimen in gardens and landscapes. Its golden foliage makes it an eye-catching addition to mixed borders, tropical-themed gardens, or any area where a splash of vibrant colour is desired.

Toxicity: As with other Duranta varieties, the berries of ‘Sheena’s Gold’ can be toxic if ingested, so it’s essential to exercise caution, especially if there are children or pets in the area.

Due to its compact size and striking appearance, Duranta ‘Sheena’s Gold’ is a popular choice for gardeners and landscapers looking to add visual interest and colour to their outdoor spaces.
