One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Vitex rotundifolia, Beach Vitex, is a pretty plant here at the USNA, but a dangerous invasive on the beaches of the SE
I always liked this plant; I remember it, from 1992, growing in what is now bed K-0, we used to call it the Korean Triangle. I rooted a cutting and had it in the front garden for a number of years and then it disappeared. I'm never sure how to deal with plants that aren't invasive here, but are other places. I guess I'll enjoy it at work and not plant it myself or put it in any designs.
