Vitex Trees

Vitex or Chaste trees are very nice additions to the desert landscape. They are a small tree, usually under 20 feet in height and can be found with single or multi-trunks.

Very heat and drought tolerant, this tree is well suited to the desert Southwest and looks good in a desert landscape.

Fragrant flower spikes grace the tree from mid to late summer, followed by clusters of small hard berries. Berries remain on the tree through-out the winter and fall to the ground the following year.

Full sun and low water requirements make the Vitex tree a good choice for the Southwestern garden.
