Extremely aromatic and profuse tightly balled bright blue-violet summer flowers appear up to 3 times per year if the plant is pruned in half after flowering! A neat compact form ideal for containers and rock gardens.
Border, Container, Green Roof, Rock Garden. 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.
Plant this little one with diminutive Lavender Cotton, (Santolina chamaecyparissus), Brilliancy Rockrose, (Cistus x 'Brilliancy'), and Huntington Carpet Rosemary, (Rosmarinus officinalis 'Huntington Carpet') A great choice with western natives such as Graham's Sage, (Salvia grahamii), Siskiyou Evening Primrose, (Oenothera speciosa 'Siskiyou') and Hartweg Penstemon, (Penstemon gentainoides).
Once established, needs only occasional watering.
