Does anyone have this exquisite purple-leafed tree? I had one myself until the builders plonked a pile of concrete pavers right on top of it. Truly! Luckily, I took a cutting before the builders turned up because I had a feeling these burly men didn’t care too much for plants. The name of the tree? Arabian lilac, or Vitex trifolia ‘Purpurea’. I haven’t seen it anywhere in New Zealand lately (I bought mine years ago). Just curious if anyone has it.
Outstanding foliage tree
