The Rock Steady™ Chastetree is a prolific bloomer, providing dependable flowers from spring through fall. Light purple flowers are tiny but grow in large flower spikes for a showy look. This beauty blooms on new wood and can continuously bloom for 6 to 16 weeks. Botanically known as Vitex agnus-castus 'V12-2-1', this shrub has green foliage that comes to a gentle point.

The rounded, upright form of the Rock Steady™ Chastetree works well in a mixed bed, border, or container. Trim the stems to display the cut flowers in arrangements. This is an easy plant to maintain as it is both heat and drought tolerant. The flowers attract pollinators, making this shrub a good choice for a butterfly garden. The Rock Steady™ Chastetree grows as a perennial in zones 5 through 9.

Rock Steady™ Chastetree Care

Chastetrees prefer dry, well-drained soil. An average-quality, sandy soil with a neutral pH will support growth. Plant the Rock Steady™ Chastetree in full sun. When newly planted, give the plant infrequent but deep waterings. Established plants are drought tolerant, but retain their flowers better with supplemental water during a prolonged dry period. Apply a balanced fertilizer in the spring.

The Rock Steady™ Chastetree blooms on new wood, so remove overgrowth in late winter or early spring before the plant wakes up from dormancy. Deadhead flowers as they begin to fade to prolong the bloom cycle.

Rock Steady™ Chastetree Spacing

Mature plants reach 4 to 12 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide. Space plants 4 to 5 feet apart to create a continuous planting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
