Uncategorized Name That Plant! Dave February 24, 2008 17 Comments Can you identify this plant? We shot this shrub in California in June of 2005 . It was at the entrance of an airplane museum at Edward’s Air Force Base. ← My Spring Challenge (Clearing the Weeds and Planting a Slope) Companion Planting and Raised Beds (A Growing Challenge Post) → 17 thoughts on “Name That Plant!” Tina February 24, 2008 at 7:21 am Is it Vitex agnus-castus?

Looks similar to a butterfly bush that we had at a prior home. Does it attract butterflies?? Log in to Reply karen February 25, 2008 at 6:01 pm That’s pretty gorgeous. Is it a Vitex? Log in to Reply Dave February 26, 2008 at 3:57 am I won’t confirm it yet but here are the two guesses so far: Vitex or Chaste TreeButterfly Bush I can see where people might think either one of these.

Log in to Reply Keith February 26, 2008 at 7:06 am I think the Butterfly bush some are suggesting is Buddleia davidii and that’s an intelligent guess, but I’m pretty sure this is Vitex agnus-castus. Log in to Reply Jim/ArtofGardening February 26, 2008 at 10:22 pm I name it Audrey II! Log in to Reply Dave February 27, 2008 at 2:46 am So far now we have: Butterfly BushVitexRosemaryAudrey IIWell I suppose everyone should have a name why not Audrey II. One question, who was Audrey the First? 😉 Log in to Reply Jim/ArtofGardening February 27, 2008 at 12:37 pm You’ve obviously never seen the movie Little Shop of Horrors. Audrey II was the name of the man-eating plant voiced by Leo Stubbs of the Four Tops. Audrey I was the ditzy flower arranger at the flower shop the plant was named after!

Log in to Reply Dave February 27, 2008 at 4:54 pm Oh that Audrey! I haven’t seen or heard anything about Little Shop of Horrors in years. Didn’t catch the reference. 🙂 Log in to Reply Rees Cowden March 2, 2008 at 1:20 pm If it is Southern California my guess is Salvia leucantha…..purple sage….did you smell the crushed leaves?Rees CowdenNo Brown Thumbs Log in to Reply Lola March 12, 2008 at 2:04 am Is this plant a Buddleia “Blue Chip” Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
