This is an excellent small tree for a hot climate with hard water. It can be pruned into an attractive shape but does require annual hard pruning to keep its shape. Neglect the pruning and it will have weak dead branchlets the next year. It blooms all summer and bees seem to be the only insects that love it. It does require more water than Vitex agnus-castus and is not as spectacular in bloom, but it;s bloom period is long and it makes a shapely tree where V.a-g does not.
