    Noteworthy Characteristics

    A tree that produces blue flowers??? Yes! Some people call this the "Sage Tree" because the striking, pretty spikes of violet-blue flowers resemble that of sages (salvias). An abundance of flowers are produced during summer. If the spent flowers are sheared off you can expect another good flush of flowers in late summer or fall. When it blooms, many mistake this tree for butterfly bush because of its long, cone-shaped flower clusters. The Chaste Tree quickly grows into a multi- or single-trunk tree to about 15 to 20 feet tall with an equal spread. The foliage is pleasantly aromatic and the very attractive palmate, finger-like, grey-green leaves bear a striking resemblance to the leaves of the marijuana plant.

    The flowers of the Chaste Tree are very attractive to hummingbirds and pollinating bees. If the spent flowers are left on the tree in fall, seeds will form that Cardinals and other birds absolutely love. So, if you are into feeding the birds, this is a must have tree that will provide a free source of food for your birds.

    In addition to the colorful flowers, the Chaste Tree also displays very attractive colorful bark.

    Uses

    The Chaste Tree can be used as a stand alone specimen, in groupings, or in rows in landscape beds, medians, or foundation plantings. Can also be useful for espalier against a tall, open wall or as a natural hedge or screen.

    Culture

    Chaste Tree is easy-to-grow plant that deserves a spot in every landscape where it will grow. Grows in almost any type of soil that has good drainage and locations that provide full sun to light shade. It is hardy in USDA Zones 6-10. In cold winter areas (USDA Zones 5 and 6) it is can be cut back each year and grown as a 4 to 6' shrub.
