If you are a fan of Lavender as a garden border plant, you will love Vitex agnus-castus f. latifolia a spectacular deciduous shrub. From a distance it almost looks like a giant Lavender! In early autumn it becomes full of sprays of purple-blue, scented flowers. It makes a great backdrop to a garden border full of perennials with white, purple and blue flowers. It can be planted as a stand alone specimen, but is particularly striking planted as an informal tall hedge. The RHS has awarded this plant its Award of Garden Merit. Height & Spread: 8m (26′).
