Vitex agnus-castus 'Alba'

Tuesday, September 12, 2006

I got a white chaste tree (scientific name in title) at Portland Nursery for under $5.00, since it did not have a tag, and the nursery could not positively identify it. I had wanted one for a long time, so was thrilled to come upon one for such a great price. After carefully planting it, I was really bummed when in the weeks following, the tree dropped all its leaves, and appeared dead. After pruning off a piece, I noticed a trace of green inside, so continued to water it & hoped for the best. This week, I was elated when I was watering to discover new shoots sprouting forth from all the branches! It's made a come-back! I'm looking forward to having this tree in my garden for many years to come. --Karli
