Aromatic Bluish-purple Flowers Appear on New Growth in Summer

Easy Growth and Adaptability
PPAF. Cultivar: 'PIIVAC-I'. If you're looking for a large shrub or small tree that combines fantastic fragrance, eye-catching foliage, and sensational blooms with easy growth and adaptability, look no further than Delta Blues™. More compact than the species, this First Editions® Chaste Tree produces aromatic bluish-purple flowers that appear on new growth in summer. Plus the foliage itself is highly fragrant. It also displays showy, small red-colored fruits that persist into winter.

Delta Blues™ adapts well to most conditions, accepting either acidic or alkaline soils, as long as the area is well-drained. This salt- and drought-tolerant tree grows to a height and width of 8 to 10 feet, making it far more manageable than the species and more conducive to garden settings. It's a great choice for a variety of applications, from mass plantings to landscape specimens, and it even makes a good understory planting as it doesn't grow too tall.

Delta Blues™ can be planting any time and has a medium growth rate. It prefers morning sun and afternoon shade. We recommend placing is somewhere you'll be able to enjoy its color as well as its fragrance and the hummingbirds and butterflies it will attract. For best results, feed a slow-release fertilizer once a year. Zones 6-9.
