Design Ideas A superior plant for Mediterranean climates treated as shrub or perennial. Preference for well drained soil makes a good candidate for hot, dry slopes and banks. Rugged enough for rock gardens in warm climates 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. An indispensable component of herb gardens.
Flower Color Purple
Foliage Color Gray-green
Companion Plants Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Rose (Rosa); Coneflower (Echinacea); 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 The lavenders have been grown in Europe long before Linnaeus's time and he named both this genus and species. Lavandula is derived from the Latin verb lavo or lavandus - to wash, because the Romans used it extensively in their ablutions and it was often used for fragrance in their famous baths. It has remained a widely cultivated crop for the oil that adds fragrance to perfumes and cosmetics.
