Vitex agnus-castus
plant_desc
This showy tree is drought resistant and easy to grow. In the summer, it blooms fragrant, colorful flowers that attract bees and hummingbirds. Its rich green foliage does resemble the Cannabis plant thus its nickname of Hemp Tree. This tree can be used as a specimen tree or as a container tree. It looks great unpruned, but it takes well to winter pruning.
