Purple Golden Dewdrop (Duranta) : FOTD Aug 19, 2022

This beautiful little tree has already filled in the space vacated by the Royal Poinciana I had to have removed. It isn’t very tall but spills out into the entire empty space left at the entrance of my house. Thanks, nature, for filling in the gaps. But, once again I need help. I planted this years ago but it has always been a bit smothered out by the other trees and I can’t for the life of me remember the name of it. Can anyone help? The flowers are 1/2 inch wide. Thanks to Nesfelico, Sam and Dennyho for identifying this little tree for me!  

For Cee’s FOTD

    Wow that is really pretty, are the flowers velvety~? is it a vine~? I don’t think I have ever seen one like this. I will look it up later. We had a very short shower last evening.. I hope this heat has broken, I want to get outside.

    I sent you another note, hope you don’t mind.

    How wondrous to see my favorite colors presented so perfectly, a surprise gift that lifts my spirit back up to where it is meant to be, at its best. Sometimes I choose to take nature’s beauty personally. So thanks for being the messenger, yet again. XOG
