Why Vitex Chaste Trees?
The Vitex Chaste Tree is a must for bold color and large, full blooms. Even better is the fact that it's great in the ground or in a container, making it a versatile favorite for any landscape.
Plus, the Vitex blooms across several seasons. That means color and fragrance for months at a time...all without any hassle from you. The Vitex is drought tolerant, cold hardy, and perfect for delivering effortless color.
Clusters of fragrant lilac blooms emerge in early summer and last well into the fall. The enticing smell of the flowers will fill up the yard and attract an array of wildlife, from butterflies to bumblebees to birds. The Vitex is your ticket to the best-yard-ever title in your neighborhood.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Vitex in an area that receives full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily). Well-drained soil is also best for the Vitex Chaste.
Dig your hole about twice as wide as the rootball, place your tree, and backfill the surrounding soil. Once you've finished planting, water the surrounding area and mulch to conserve moisture.
2. Watering: Water once or twice weekly, or simply check your tree's surrounding soil. It's time to water your tree once the soil is dry around 2 or 3 inches down.
3. Fertilizing: Feed with an all-purpose fertilizer once a year in the spring.
4. Pruning: Prune in the late winter for shaping, and remove any dead or broken branches throughout the year.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Tree was healthy upon delivery and is already starting to bloom.
When I received my Chaste tree several of the leaves were brown and spotty. I got in touch with the company, fast growing trees, and I was told that its was shock to go ahead and plant it. I figure they know what their talking about and sure enough my tree has grown so fast and it's beautiful. My humming birds, butterflies and honey bees love it.
Just received this tree. Delivery was quick. The tree looked in pretty good shape. A few minor branches broken from shipping, but overall it looked very healthy. I planted it immediately , watering daily, and hopeful it makes it thru a New England winter.
The tree arrived very healthy and in excellent condition, as have all the trees I’ve purchased from this company. My son has a Chaste Tree and I have wanted one for a long time. It is small now, but I am excited to see it grow and provide scent and shade over our back patio.
My tree arrived in great shape. I planted it within a day. It has been getting plenty of sunshine and water and is doing well.
