My next door neighbor has this plant in a large pot. It seems to be a shrub or a tree and from the form of the flowers may be from the acanthaceae family. If anyone can id this plant I would very much appreciate it.

I believe it's Vitex trifolia 'Purpurea'

RE: Plant ID

I agree, had one growing where I lived previously. It's a native here so don't know if it was planted by someone else or just came up.

RE: Plant ID

Hi trini 1,

Thank you very much for the information my next door neighbor will be very happy to learn the identity of their plant. They told me it was given to them as a cutting.
