Is this an oleander?


We have kids now so I'd like to know if this is an oleander since they're poisonous.

Thanks, AP

I don't think so. Will you take a close-up of a few leafs and let us see, please.

I have identified it as a vitex tree or chaste tree. When it's in bloom, it has purple cone flowers.

Yeah, I just did a ton of cutting on it - and then got worried bc if it was an oleander, I should be looking out due to the poisonous sap, leaves, etc.

It's a Vitex, though, so it's all good.

Really appreciate the help!
