Vitex agnus castus - Chaste Shoal Creek 

Click to see full-size image

Can be used for bonsaiLarge shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersFragrantSpice or herbAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Chaste tree carries several sacred names, which more or less directly refer to its reputation as an aphrodisiac. In ancient Greece, the tree was called hagnos chaste, which apparently the early Christians confused with Latin agnus lamb, the Christian symbol of purity. Under the name agnus castus chaste lamb, the plants was often used among Christian monks as a help against the evils of the more fleshy desires. The chaste tree is a beautiful little deciduous tree or large shrub with a showy summertime flower display. When it's blooming, due to the similarity of the flowers, the chaste tree is sometimes mistaken for Butterfly Bush (Buddleja). The chaste tree is a sprawling plant that grows 10-20 ft and about as wide. Branched flower clusters are produced on new wood in late spring and early summer in a great flush that makes the tree look like a hazy purple cloud. Flowers are followed by a fleshy fruit that contains four seeds that are sometimes used as seasoning, similar to black pepper. Easy to grow in almost any soil that has good drainage! Even tolerant of salt drift.
It has high medicinal value in herbal remedies for female health.
