Pink Pinnacle Chaste Shrub, Vitex agnus-castus ‘V07-SC-OP-4’, is an ornamental shrub with gorgeous, pink blooms and would look right at home next to your front porch or patio. It’s also an outstanding choice for a short hedge along your sidewalk or driveway.
Your Pink Chaste Shrub is best known for its long spikes of floral brilliance that create a stand-out vision in any landscape. The long panicles of delightfully-pink blossoms gradually open from the bottom and extend out, reaching upward above the vibrant, green foliage. Simply tweak off the spent blooms and the floral show will continue all summer long.
The flowers can even be brought inside by clipping a few cuttings for floral arrangements. The flowers also work well in craft projects, and can easily be picked early in the season to hang and dry for later use.
When the flowers have gone, dark berries follow the flowers for an additional decorative touch. These versatile berries are sometimes dried and used for a variety of purposes (including spices or medicinal uses). Pink Vitex Shrubs even has decorative foliage that is compound and palmate. Each large, aromatic leaf consists of several 2 to 4-inch leaflets that feature elegant tapering and silver-toned undersides (with an overall appearance that lends texture to the garden setting).
The Pink Vitex Shrub has a compact, rounded habit with a slightly bushy nature. It has some drought and salt tolerance. With its similar bloom to Lilacs, Pink Chaste is an excellent choice for Lilac-lovers who reside in warmer climates (where lilac trees would struggle). It’s even insect and disease resistant and deer tend to pass it by. With its adaptability to a variety of soils and generally hardy nature, Pink Chaste is a shrub that asks for little but gives a lot in return.
