Vitex & Tx Mtn Laurel problem?
Last year it started dropping leaves in August, but the suckers are full and look healthy. Now this spring, it is putting on leaves, but they are sparse. I'm so sick of the suckers I'm thinking of cutting it down at the ground and letting it come back as a bush.
What does your vitex look like right now? Is this normal?
Also, I pruned off the lower branches of my Texas Mountain Laurel, and this spring it has tons of suckers around it.
I hate suckers and I am not going to spend my time trimming things into trees that want to be a bush. Like yaupon hollies and crape myrtles. I thought Tx Mtn Laurel did well as a single trunk tree. Are suckers on it normal?
