Both silvery green foliage and lavender flower spikes are aromatic on this compact evergreen perennial. Flowers dance above the foliage on slender stalks from spring to summer.
A superior plant for hot, dry slopes and banks. 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.
Good hedge or edging plant. A must-have in herb gardens and the flowers are extremely popular in perfumes and sachets. An enchanting container plant, with the foliage pouring gracefully over the sides. Requires very well-drained soil. Little fertilizer is needed and it is drought tolerant once established. Full sun. Slow growing 12 to 18 in. tall and wide.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape.
