Design IdeasA 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.
