Vitex, or Chaste tree is a Mediterranean native and, as such, prefers life sunny and well-drained. Though it's drought tolerant once established, it will grow faster with supplemental summer water. Part shade will slow it's growth but as long as the site is not in full shade, your vitex should be happy.
