Family: Verbenaceae

Duranta repens Geisha Girl is a stunning deep blue form of Duranta repens, originating in Japan. The delicately perfumed, deep blue flowers ar beautifully complimented by white centres and wavy borders of white on the petals edges. These wisteria-like, vanilla scented flowers bloom from spring through to winter.

Flowers are produced on the terminal growth of its graceful weeping branches. Leaves are soft and shiny. Flowers appear throughout spring, summer and autumn.
Geisha Girl will tolerate light frosts. For best flowering results plant in full sun. Prune to shape after flowering. Fertilise with a slow release fertiliser after pruning.

Fantastic when used as a feature specimen and just as beautiful when used in pots, Geisha Girl is a small growing shrub reaching 2 metres high by 2 metres wide, but can be kept smaller with pruning.
