what is it


I took my granddaughter to the zoo last sunday and kept noticing this very interesting bush, none of the zoo employees I asked could tell me what it was, so I was hoping if I described it maybe someone here would know,.....

It has a fingered leaf similar to hemp

The flowers clusters look very similar to those growing on butterfly bushes, and are pale lavender

seems to get about 5 foot tall and 6-7 feet wide

and does very well in zone 6b (Springfield, Missouri)

sorry I can't post pictures

Thanks for looking,
ARC

Perhaps Vitex?

I am with ZuZu on this one. Could be the Chaste tree (Vitex agnus-castus).
