Design Ideas A versatile small lavender renowned for a size well suited to containers. But like its full size predecessors it remains valuable for dry slopes, banks and rock gardens. Exceptional component of Mediterranean style gardens both formal and casual. With similar requirements as western natives, it is suitable for xeriscape or wild gardens. Equally suited to traditional mixed borders with perennials and flowering shrubs provided soil is well drained. Performs best in artistic pots and particularly beautiful in aged classical terra cotta.

CARE
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. Prune back by one-half after flowering to encourage rebloom.
HISTORY
Lore Oil rich lavender has long been used in bathing so it's scent is an age old favorite for bed and bath preparations, fragrances and cosmetics.
