Duranta as a border

Does anyone have any experience growing duranta as a border plant in Central Texas? I love the bright green/yellow leaves that make a bed pop! I believe the one in the picture is called Cuban Gold and may be a dwarf variety. The picture is also probably from Florida. But what about here in Texas?

RE: Duranta as a border

I have Duranta 'Gold Mound' which is similar color. The leaves turn dark in the winter when they are burned by frost. It's not pretty when that happens and sort of looks like spinach going bad. The gold leaves are returning now but I wouldn't put it in a highly visible spot. Duranta is borderline hardy and a very cold winter could kill it.
