Vitex Blue Puffball is the first perfectly dwarf chaste tree.
Growing to only 3-4' tall and wide, a perfect ball-shaped plant with deep blue, fragrant flowers from June through September. The flowers form on new growth.
Vitex are large multistemmed shrubs that maintain fairly dense, symmetrical and rounded canopies.
In early summer Vitex begin producing silvery gray buds on the tips of each stem that open to a beautiful display of lavender blue flowers that are extremely fragrant.
Each cluster of flowers that the Vitex produces has dense rings of lavender blue flowers and each cluster can range from 8 to 12 inches long. Vitex continue this process over several weeks until the clusters completely blanket the entire canopy which are relished by butterflies. Vitex can tolerate most soil conditions, provided they are well drained, and will flourish in full sun
