Vitex trifolia purpurea 'Fascination' - Arabian Lilac

The deep green leaves of Arabian Lilac have purple undersides, providing lovely contrast to your garden greenery. The distinctive two-tone effect guarantees year-round color, with an addition of delicate purple flower sprays that appear in summer. Arabian Lilac is not a true lilac, but a relative of a Vitex variety native to the Mediterannean. This durable shrub invites butterflies to your garden and is wonderful as a stand alone specimen plant, informal hedge or small tree. It's also an attractive choice for a container plant. Arabian Lilac is tolerant of desert heat, but needs protection from freezing temperatures. Plant in full sun to partial shade.
