Small tree or shrub. Purple flowers in panicles in late spring to summer. Attractive to bees and butterflies. Foliage compound, opposite dissected, similar to Japanese Maple. Can seed itself and be weedy. Loose, well-drained soil.
I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Nurseries Caroliniana in March 2012 and planted it in the Golf Course Hedge. It has grown but not as vigorously as Vitex agnus-castus 'Riverbanks White'.
