Description

Details

(Chastetree) Blue Diddley® Vitex is a compact variety of Chastetree standing 3-6 feet tall and is a carefree variety. Blue Diddley® blooms midsummer sending up fragrant, long lasting, 10-12 inch lavender blue spikes of flowers that contrast beautifully with the dark green star shaped foliage. In the north, zones 5-6, Blue Diddley® acts like a perennial and will die back to the ground. It will regrow and flower much like a butterfly bush, breaking bud slowly in the spring, so be patient. It will grow like a shrub or small tree in the south. The beautiful blooms of Blue Diddley® Vitex attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and honeybees. Drought tolerant, Blue Diddley® prefers a full sun location and is great as a specimen in the mixed border or is small enough for patio containers. Fall trimming may be recommended to keep Blue Diddley® in a more tight and compact form. Vitex Blue Diddley® is a Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrub.
