Shoal Creek Chaste Tree
Exquisite Blue Flowered Tree!
Shoal Creek Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus ‘Shoal Creek’) is a new cultivar of a gracious old Southern garden classic. Chaste Tree is one of the few trees that blooms with violet-blue flower spikes all summer long. And Shoal Creek takes it up a notch, with longer lasting and more fragrant flowers than any before it.
Shoal Creek is beautiful whether in bloom or not. It makes a spotlight-worthy specimen or small patio tree, with its naturally occurring multiple trunks and airy canopy. Several together make a splendid hedge along a driveway or property line.
Your Shoal Creek Chaste Tree has wonderfully aromatic green foliage with a silver-blue cast. In the summer you will be awed by the impressive violet-blue spikes that bloom like candlesticks right up until autumn.
This isn’t a native to the United States, but is a favorite southern garden plant. It is fast-growing for the impatient. Savvy gardeners will put this beauty in the rear of their perennial border because it makes the perfect backdrop for summer flowers like coneflower, daylily and tickseed.
You don’t require any special knowledge or skill to grow this tree in your yard. It’s a very easy-to-grow plant. It is drought-tolerant and disease resistant. You will love the return you get on your limited investment (both in time and in money!) with Shoal Creek.
Don’t let another southern summer go by without adding some of these beauties from Nature Hills to your landscape!
