I explained my dilemma about planting a butterfly bush here.
So instead I decided to purchase a chaste tree but I had to order it from Hirt’s Gardens in Ohio.
It came in a Priority mail box filled with foam peanuts delivered by the U.S. Postal Service. I unpacked the box immediately and put the 4″ plant out in the rain.
The next day I dug a small hole near the back steps allowing 3 feet on either side for the tree to grow. Following the directions on the tag I backfilled the hole, watered the plant, and added a few inches of mulch.
I’m hoping to be able to show considerable growth over the next month even though I don’t expect to have flowers this year.
Do you have a favorite color flower?
