Has anyone seen either ceanothus or vitex agnus castus aka chaste tree in a nursery? So far I'm getting blank looks at the local ones...

adjuga, green, burgundy, 2 variegated
creeping jenny
1 small burgundy/green variegated hot pink phlox
French tarragon
3 salvia coccinea - hummingbird plant
yellow pear tomato
yellow teardrop tomato

plus I've got the following winter sown/indoors small seedlings:
coreopsis tinctoria
helliopsis "lorraine sunshine"
maltese cross
sweet william "Pinocchio", "Beauty Holborn Glory"
1 tithonia orange "goldfinger" - hummingbirds & butterflies

Hi Heather,

I have a ton of little Ceanothus sprouts (americanus variety aka "New Jersey Tea") and you're welcome to a couple.

It looks like my beautiful Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus) succumbed to our terrible winter (boo hoo). I suppose there's a chance that it'll leaf out-- maybe we just need some warm nights. I'll let you know.
