A True-Blue Flowering Tree? No Way!
Are you looking for something truly different and unique for your yard this summer? Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus) is one of only a handful of winter-hardy trees that blooms with true-blue flower spikes all summer long.
You will be hard-pressed to find a more spectacularly beautiful plant with more outstanding qualities. Wonderful whether in bloom or not, it does great as a specimen or small patio tree, and makes an eye-catching hedge along a driveway or property line.
Your Chaste Tree has handsome and aromatic green foliage with a decidedly silvery cast. Then, as summer heats up, your Chaste Tree will astound you with its impressive blue spikes that bloom right up until autumn.
The Chaste Tree isn’t native to the United States, but has quickly become a favorite here. It’s a fast-growing, multi-trunked tree. Its upright growth can be pruned to approximate either a large shrub or small tree to fit your needs.
You don’t need any special skills or knowledge to grow this tree in your yard. It’s easy to grow, drought-tolerant and disease resistant. You’ll be shocked at the return you get on your limited investment (both of time and money!) with this tree.
This tree was named “chaste” in medieval Europe, because it was wrongly thought that a potion made from the flowers would cure an overactive libido. Just the opposite is true – you will fall madly in love with this plant in your yard. Don’t let summer go by without adding one from Nature Hills to your landscape!
