Vitex Chaste Tree Question

16 years ago

Hello! I am considering buying three vitex (or three crepe nyrtle)to screen our back patio from our neighbor's house, letting them grow into a tree shape. My questions:

What month should I expect it to lose it's leaves in the fall? I live in Tampa.

Does it go leaf-less for a longer time than the crepe myrtles or about the same?

Is it comperable in size and habit as the larger crepe myrtle varieties?

Thanks for your help!
