>Mr Bumble Bee obviously doesn’t refer to Wikipedia.
Otherwise he’d know to keep well away from Vitex (Vitex agnus-castus).
Aka Chaste Tree, Chasteberry, or Monk’s Pepper, the latter being the translation of the common German name – Mönchspfeffer.
It supposedly acts as an anaphrodisiac.
Unless, of course, we’re looking at Mrs Bumble Bee, in which she won’t have any issues with PMS in future…
All very interesting stuff, but the main reason we bought it is for the aromatic foliage and the blossoms.
(And despite this being quite a successful image, I WISH I’d bought the Nikon D100 for TTL metering on the old AI-Nikkor lenses.)
