Anna--Flowergardengirl 25 Feb 2008 Adonis Blue Butterfly Bush Anna--Flowergardengirl 25 Feb 2008 I looked at it again and agree with tina above=a vitex or we call it Chaste Tree Lilac Skeeter 25 Feb 2008 It does look like one of my butterfly bushes… Kerri 25 Feb 2008 It is Beautiful, whatever it is. Looks similar to a butterfly bush that we had at a prior home. Does it attract butterflies?? karen 25 Feb 2008 That’s pretty gorgeous. Is it a Vitex? Dave 26 Feb 2008 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. Anna--Flowergardengirl 26 Feb 2008 The leaves on my puter look a little like rosemary too. Wish I was smelling it and looking closer at the leaf. Keith 26 Feb 2008 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. Jim/ArtofGardening 26 Feb 2008 I name it Audrey II! Dave 27 Feb 2008 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? 😉 Jim/ArtofGardening 27 Feb 2008 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! Kay 27 Feb 2008 Looks like ceanothus to me. Skeeter 27 Feb 2008 Could this be some type of sage? Dave 27 Feb 2008 Oh that Audrey! I haven’t seen or heard anything about Little Shop of Horrors in years. Didn’t catch the reference. 🙂 Rees Cowden 2 Mar 2008 If it is Southern California my guess is Salvia leucantha…..purple sage….did you smell the crushed leaves?Rees CowdenNo Brown Thumbs Lola 12 Mar 2008 Is this plant a Buddleia “Blue Chip” Comments are closed.
