The Vitex Tree, Spectacular Blooms And Heat Tolerant

Vitex Tree picture for blog posted 4-15-2023

The Vitex, or Chaste tree, is a lovely multi trunked small tree and is easily identified by its lilac purple flowers that bloom during the summer. A native to southern Europe, the trees blossoms attract butterflies and are considered low maintenance.  They do drop their blooms, as well as the leaves will drop during the winter. While it is a very drought tolerant tree, its health and growth rate will benefit from a regular watering schedule, especially during the summer.  Contact your local nursery to see if they carry this spectacular tree to add this to your landscape.
