When I first started gardening, I once came across a large shrub that looked like an odd Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii); upon investigation, I found out that it was a Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus). Last Autumn I saw one - tiny - in a local nursery and bought it. In the ensuing months, it lost 2/3 of its growth (the guys who mow my lawn . . ., children running through the yard . . ., an animal?) and I was afraid the remaining 1/3 would not make it through the Winter. But, here it is! The bottom photograph was taken on April 8, the top one this morning (in the rain, hence the flash).
