Vitex






VITEX AGNUS-CASTUS.--Chaste Tree, Hemp Tree, and Monk's Pepper-tree. A

South European shrub (1670), growing from 6 feet to 10 feet high, with

digitate leaves that are almost hoary beneath, and spikes of small

violet flowers. It is not very hardy, although in some of the warmer

parts of southern England and Ireland, fair-sized, healthy-looking

specimens are now and then to be met with. As a wall plant, however, it

succeeds best, and for which purpose, with its neat foliage and pretty

flowers, it is peculiarly suitable.
