Vitex agnus castus Latifolia is one of the few members of this genus that will grow well in the Uk. Most of this genus are native to the tropics and sub tropics. This does however give them a faintly tropical appearance. Vitex agnus castus Latifolia is an lovely RHS award winning shrub that has reputedly been cultivated in the Uk since the late 1500's. A large, spreading, deciduous shrub, with fine, lacy, glossy green leaves which are lightly fragrant. Racemes of violet, fragrant flowers, appear on the ends of the branches in mid to late autumn. Reasonably cold hardy but best planted in full sun in a sheltered location. Beside a wall is a favoured location. If you cannot offer a full sun location there is a risk that in dull summers it will not ripen sufficiently to produce flowers. Can be used in a mixed planting or as a stand alone specimen in the garden or can be grown in a pot or container. When growing in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires.
