Daytona HeatTM Petty Blue Vitex

  Vitex agnus-castus daytona petty blue

 

is a unique vitex as compared to the industry standards ‘Shoal Creek’ and ‘Abbeville Blue’.  It has medium blue flowers (rather than dark blue or purple) borne on compound panicles that have a greater number of secondary peduncles per panicle compared to the standards.  This large panicle creates a candelabra appearance. The foliage on V. agnus-castus is highly aromatic, and Danica Pink™ is a more compact form of the species. Adapts to acid or alkaline soils as long as the site is well-drained, salt tolerant.  Vitex are large multistemmed shrubs that maintain fairly dense, symmetrical and rounded canopies. It can be limbed up to grow into a small tree over time. Great for use as a large flowering hedge or specimen plant. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
