Suited to traditional mixed borders with perennials and flowering shrubs. Performs in large artistic pots and particularly beautiful in classical style with antique finish.|

|Care||Thrives in lean, loose, fast-draining, slightly alkaline soil with a gravel mulch. Plant with crowns slightly above soil level. Water regularly during first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Prune lightly after flowering to promote next season's growth.|
|Lore||Since the ancient Phoenecians and Egyptians who first utilized its oils, lavender has been central to medicine and hygiene and magic of many cultures. It was valued as a powerful fragrance since ancient times. In Europe lavender and its oil was integrated into hundreds of preparations designed to cure everything from syphilis to the bite of a mad dog. It was highly valued by the Romans in their famous baths and remains today a favorite herb and oil for soaps and other cosmetics.|
