Name that popular Centerpointe shrub

Answer:  Vitex.
Quite a stunner, isn't it??  Every year at this time, folks ask me "What IS that?!"  Why it took Vitex so long to become popular in our area, I don't know, because it's a natural choice.  
It's a great plant for the common areas - very hardy and drought-tolerant. Probably not so great for small back yards, though, as it spreads quite wide.  It also tends to droop low over the sidewalks, forcing us dog-walkers to duck, but it's so pretty we can forgive that much.
