The First Perfectly Dwarf Chaste Tree!

Have you ever seen a Chaste Tree in full bloom? There is nothing quite like it - deep sky blue spires reaching up like candles all over the tree. It instantly commands attention in a garden. Unfortunately, you might not always have room for another tree in your garden. Well, thanks to a new breakthrough in breeding, we now have the first perfectly dwarf chaste tree that will fit into ANY garden! Blue Puffball Vitex has the exact same characteristics of the tree form that you know and love, just in a perfectly compact ball-shaped plant!

The deep blue, fragrant flowers cover the bush from June through September. The flowers form on new growth, so even when in dies back in the winter in colder climates, you can expect a great summer show next year.

Blue Puffball fits perfectly in your border or in your bed. The round shape lends itself to just about any pot style, too, so buy a couple to flank your front door and have the most talked-about entryway in the neighborhood.

Use Blue Puffball in place of catmint, lavender or sage in your garden and enjoy the fresh new take on lavender-blue spikey plants.

Blue Puffball will grow quickly to fill in bare spots in your foundation plantings or border. Order yours today so you can be enjoying the beauty soon.

  • Striking blue flowers
  • First ever dwarf vitex
  • Perfect in containers
