Vitex agnus-castus
‘Shoal Creek’

A fantastic TOUGH award-winning improved cultivar of “Chaste Tree” much loved for its faster, vigorous growth and larger, denser bloom spikes. Just spectacular in Summer bloom for several months or more with deadheading. Swoon-worthy dense fragrant 12” flower spikes are a glorious and welcome sight in Summer and utterly magnetic for bees, butterflies and hummers! Grows naturally to 10-15’, but you can easily cut it back to 3’ tall in Winter to create a bushy 4-5’ shrub or prune off some lower branches for an elegant small tree. Happiest and most floriferous in full sun and compost enhanced, well-drained soil. Long lasting cut flowers! Deciduous. Heat and deer resistant.
