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.
Flower Color Purple
Foliage Color Gray-green
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.
