Design Ideas Spanish Lavender's rangy shape and thicker flower heads make a bolder statement than its less-rugged relatives. A great filler for shrub beds, as edging or in a clump of three to five. Cluster next to landscape boulders to make them appear more natural or near columns and fence posts to soften the transition. Excellent for rock gardens and slopes.
Flower Color Purple
Foliage Color Gray-green
Companion Plants Fountain Grass (Pennisetum); Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Coneflower (Echinacea); Rose Mallow (Hibiscus moscheutos); Rose (Rosa); Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Shasta Daisy (Chrysanthemum)
CARE
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.
HISTORY
Lore Lavender has been a favorite plant and fragrance for the bath since Roman times. It is equally popular today for cut sprigs and dried aromatics in the home.
