Vitex (Vites angus-castus)

DESCRIPTION

Vitex, also known as the Chaste tree, is most noteworthy for its abundant display of purple blooms at every growth tip during the summer months. Butterflies swarm to this water-wise flowering tree. One of the plant's common names, Monk's Pepper, references the use of its seeds as a pepper substitute in monasteries, where it was prized for its intrinsic effects on virility.

The turning, twisting trunks under the bright flowering canopy give Vitex a unique, statuesque appearance. This water-wise selection requires little maintenance and is a welcome addition to any landscape. Vitex trees establish quickly and are exceptionally strong in full sun locations.
