Vitex agnus-castus 'Shoal Creek' - Chaste-Tree
Fragrant blue-violet flowers on long spikes open from July to September on this imposing shrub with dusty gray-green foliage. Vitex thrives in a sunny, well-drained location. It may die back to the ground in some winters, but it will quickly reestablish itself and bloom on new wood. In the South it may develop into an impressive small tree with interesting bark. We have been impressed by this recent introduction whose flower color is noticeably more brilliant than the species. Z.(6)7-9
Bushy plants, grown in 3-gallon pots.
