Product Overview

Shoal Creek Vitex, also called Chastetree, is a long-blooming small tree (or shrub) that is often planted around porches, patios, and decks for its beautiful summer flowers and its ability to attract butterflies. Chastetree blooms in the summer in clusters of violet flowers that resemble spikes. Besides its beauty, the leaves of the Chastetree also boast of an aromatic quality. The tree is fast-growing and reaches a height and width of about 12 ft. It is hardy in Zones 6-9 and can be planted in full sun or partial shade. Chastetree thrives particularly well in the heat. The plant is shipped in a #1 pot with a minimum height of 12 in.

    They came staked, and looked healthy. We ordered very late in the spring season and both plants came with flower buds ready to open. After planting (2 plants), we had terrible heat but somehow the plants continued to survive and are blooming nicely after about a month.

    These plants have only been in the ground for less than a month so I don't know how they will thrive long term (reason only a 4 rating). However, I was well pleased how the supplier had shipped the plants. Each of the 9 vitex were packaged individually in a strong, cardboard container (called a coffin box) and the plant's roots were in light weight plastic pot with mulch. Each pot was wrapped in clear plastic wrap to retain moisture during the transit from supplier to me.

      It took almost 2 weeks in the mail system for this plant to arrive. I'm hoping it makes it - it's struggling now and has lost half of its leaves.
