    Vitex agnus-castus ‘Montrose Purple’ is a large deciduous shrub or small tree when limbed up with aromatic, palmately compound leaves. From early summer to frost the Texas Lilac is covered with 8-12″ long fragrant flower spikes. The flowers are a brilliant medium violet color and work very well for attracting bees, butterflies and hummingbirds into the garden.
