What plans do you have for it? Shohin semi cascade?
This could look really great one day. It's looking really interesting now.
Mine would not go dormant this year. .
But will that allow them to prepare for cold temperatures and survive hard frosts?If you want to force dormancy just set it in the shade for a few days. This even works in the summer. They will completely drop all leaves when not in full sun. That's what I had to do this year. It won't wake up until nights are over 50F at least. It's one of the last to wake up in fact.

the East Indians have a different variety that is as far as I know,
The Agnus Castus tends to die from the same ailment as the Maple.
Needs some rest.
We grew from seed and after some years they died off.
Have another type, still going.
Someone on one of your threads said they die back like that I think. There’s some planted at the local library that are huge, and they don’t die back so I’m probably good. Then again, they are in the ground so who knows. Oh well I’m only out $15 and a year plus soil if it doesn’t make it lol.Don't know, I don't get hard frosts. This year we only got 2 very light frosts. In the past we have had weeks in the 20's and even down in the teens with zero damage to any Vitex. It's my understanding that up north in landscape they freeze and die back nearly to the ground each year kind of like an annual flower.
