Although the Vitex is known by many names it is best known for its beautiful spikes of purple blooms is has in the summer months. The Vitex is prized for not only these unique desert blooms, but also for its natural ability to attract butterflies to one’s landscape. One of the plant's common names, monk's pepper, references the use of its seeds as a pepper substitute in monasteries, where it was prized for its intrinsic effects on virility.
The small stature and low maintenance requirements of the Vitex allow its unique properties to be brought into just about any landscape. The turning, twisting trunks contrast well with the larger, more uniform trees commonly seen in Sonoran landscapes. Vitex trees establish quickly and are well suited for full sun exposure.
