Goodwin Creek Gray Lavender
Lavandula x ginginsii 'Goodwin Creek Gray'
|Description||A dense mound of finely toothed, silver-grey foliage and beautiful, long, slender, dark purple flower spikes. Very tolerant of heat, sun, and periodic drought. Ideal for sunny perennial borders or rock gardens, and raised beds or containers. In colder climates, overwinter potted plants indoors until spring, after danger of frost. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Let soil go almost dry between waterings.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 2 to 4 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Edging|
|Design Ideas||This hybrid Lavender makes an informal heat-loving perennial to fill borders or a dense edging plant. Also works well as a short hedge either left natural or sheared, which releases its fragrance even when out of bloom. Resistant to heat and some drought, Lavender is perfect for rock gardens, with Western natives or in drought-resistant plantings.|
|Companion Plants||Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Rose (Rosa); Coneflower (Echinacea); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum)|
|Care||Thrives in lean, loose, fast-draining, slightly alkaline soil; avoid heavy, soggy soils. Plant with crowns slightly above soil level. Water regularly during the first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates periodic drought. Remove spent flowers to promote continued bloom.|
|Lore||Genus name, Lavandula is derived from the Latin verb lavoor lavandus - to wash, because it was widely used in ancient Roman baths.|
