Vitex agnus-castus latifolia (Vitex agnus-castus (Agno Casto))

Here's my impulse buy, planted in the most sheltered position it can be while facing south-west.

Thank you - you can see why I fell for it! :-)))

It is much better than the washed-out pink variety. In a few years you will like it even more when it is big and covered in flowers and bees, and moths in the evening.

I do hope it's still there, Wylie...fingers crossed for a milder winter than last year!

Pretty colour, hope we have a milder winter too, we had frost last night I was lucky has I moved my cuttings into the mini greenhouse;0)

That's early! We had a warning forecast last week, but it didn't happen here. We'll all have to be ready, though, I'm afraid. :-((

I lost my vitex last winter. It looked OK in the spring but the roots had obviously suffered and it died. I'll get another one next year

Oh no! I was going to ask you if your was OK. I'm thinking of giving this some protection - what do you think?

I would defintiely mulch the roots. I let mine grow for about three years befoe I started pruning it - then cut it back fairly hard (within one or two buds of the old wood) each spring to keep it within bounds

I thought I'd play safe this year, and mulch the roots as well as fleece it.
