This is a deciduous woody plant which loses its leaves in the winter. By late September this plant may have brown or discolored leaves with some leaf loss. This is normal in the plant’s life cycle and not a sign of damage or an unhealthy plant. Even though this plant may not have green foliage, fall is still the best time of year to plant deciduous trees and shrubs.

chaste The flowers are arranged in clusters along a spike and are  lilac or pale violet, with bloom time    June through September.  Since the blooms occur on new growth, old blooms could be pruned  off as they fade on small plants to promote new growth and new blooms later in the season.

 Chaste tree can grow up to 25 feet tall and wide. Nurseries usually train them as multi-trunk  small trees or large shrubs. Two to three feet of growth a year is common.
