Vitex?

steve22802(7a VA)June 30, 2010

I have a mid sized Vitex (Chaste Tree) bush that is now beginning to bloom. Has anyone used these blossoms in cut flower arrangements? Any advice on using them or getting best vase life?

Thanks,

Steve

Very short vase life, but they are beautiful.

Steve, let em flower on the bush and wait for the seed pods. Nice lime green colour and they hold up well.

The cardinals eat the seeds in winter.
