Tree File
Vitex 'Chaste Tree'
Vitex agnus castus
Height:   12'+
Width:   8'+
Exposure:   Sun
Water:   Appreciates being watered frequently during dry spells of summer
Hardiness:   USDA Zones 6-10
Pruning:   Pruning is not necessary, however can be cut back by 1/3 in winter to control height or maintain denser form

Although its name says 'tree' this shrub, like crape myrtle, is actually a large shrub that can be limbed up to form a tree. Vitex is one of only a few shrubs/small tree we know of that produces blue flowers. The vertical, blue flower spikes resemble those of salvia.

The growth habit is very similiar to that of crape myrtles being upright and rounded. Many people say the green foliage resembles that of laceleaf Japanese maples or cannibas (marijuana), so don't be suprised if you are hauling one home in the back of your truck and the police pull you over for an closer look!

We plant the Chaste Tree as a specimen focal point.
