Vitex agnus-castus
‘Shoal Creek’

A fantastic and TOUGH award-winning improved cultivar of “Chaste Tree” much loved for its faster, more vigorous growth and larger, denser bloom spikes. Blooming heavily for several months or more –  it’s a spectacular sight in Summer. Swoonworthy and fragrant purplicious 12” flower spikes are 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.
