A "lilac" for summer

My new Vitex (or chaste tree) is blooming like crazy, and living up to its reputation as a butterfly attractor (although most are more fleeting than this visitor). It's a great plant for hot, dry areas, and can even take some salt, a boon to those of use living near the shore.
