Delta Blues Vitex (Vitex agnus-castus Delta Blues) is a fast-growing, large flowering shrub or flowering tree that produces prolific lavender-blue flower spikes. The bright blue flowers make a striking contrast to the bright green foliage and their fragrance is irresistible to hummingbirds, butterflies, and pollinators.

It has a rounded growth habit, prefers sunlight, and works well as a border planting. Similar to a crape myrtle, Delta Blues Vitex shrubs are multi-trunked with a similar mounding growth habit. When you buy your Delta Blues Vitex shrub online, plant it somewhere in your yard with a lot of space where it can grow and thrive.

How to Care for Delta Blues Vitex Shrubs

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Delta Blues Vitex Shrubs that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Delta Blues Vitex Shrubs to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone fertilizer is recommended to be used at planting to provide the much needed mycorrhiza fungus that naturally protects plant roots from diseases and pathogens.
