Name That Plant!

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.

  1. I won’t confirm it yet but here are the two guesses so far:

    Vitex or Chaste Tree
    Butterfly Bush

    I can see where people might think either one of these.

  2. 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.

  3. So far now we have:

    Butterfly Bush
    Audrey II

    Well I suppose everyone should have a name why not Audrey II. One question, who was Audrey the First? 😉

  4. 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!

  5. Oh that Audrey! I haven’t seen or heard anything about Little Shop of Horrors in years. Didn’t catch the reference. 🙂

  6. If it is Southern California my guess is Salvia leucantha…..
    purple sage….did you smell the crushed leaves?
