Vitex agnus-castus, Vitex or Chaste tree. Elongated palmated gray green leaves, give way to spires of tiny purple flowers, adored by bees & butterflies alike. Believed to be a anaphrodisiac...it's use is thought to quell desires and remain chaste...thus another common name is Monks Pepper.

Indeed @cyndi ... I could have written a story on this multi-stemmed multi-use shrub/tree.
