The Garden Gate: The Butterfly Tree

The most beautiful Tree in our Garden this time of the year is our Chaste Tree or better known as a butterfly tree. When it blooms in early June it is covered with beautiful lilac blooms. The most common form of the Chaste Tree Vitex Agnus-Castus formed multitrunked tree about 15 to 20 feet tall and wide. Large branched spikes of blue to purple flowers crown the branches in summer.

Peace and Joy

  3. Hi Miz Helen! What a beautiful tree. I don't think we have anything like that here in Australia. Just beautiful, especially with the butterflies visiting.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I just LOVE these trees! I want one for my yard, but I read that the bees love it and my son would freak out every time he mowed. Ha ha!
