LoreSince 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.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; reaches 30 in. tall, 24 in. wide.

Design IdeasA superior plant for slopes and banks of hot dry regions. Rugged enough for rock gardens in warm climates and natural rocky outcroppings where it is likely to naturalize. Exceptional component of Mediterranean style gardens both formal and casual. With similar requirements as western natives, it is suitable for xeriscape or wild gardens in dry climates. Suited to traditional mixed borders with perennials and flowering shrubs. Performs in large artistic pots and particularly beautiful in classical style with antique finish.
