Here’s an update on a couple of the new additions in my garden this year. Earlier this summer I picked up a small seedling of a Chase Tree or Vitex agnus-castus. It has taken off like a rocket this summer and will probably have to be transplanted from it’s large container into the garden this fall. And look what I found forming, flower buds!
My Coral Bark Japanese Maple was purchased at the same time as the Vitex and is doing well too. It hasn’t grown as quickly, but I’m pleased with the progress. This one probably won’t be ready for the garden for a few years still.
I picked this new addition up just the other day at Lowe’s. They were marking a bunch of their shrubs 50-75% off. And I couldn’t resist when they told me this would be marked down to $2.98 (originally $8.98). What a bargain don’t you think? Now I think I’ll wait until September to plant it. I’m thinking of just the perfect place. 🙂
