Description by: Cistus Nursery
ServicesMail Order Nursery Retail Nursery
Easily one of the most attractive of the lavenders, with substantial, silver fur covered leaves on compact shrubs to about 18” by 3'. The flowers are fattened clusters of rich...lavender, freely produced. Alas not the most frost hardy, reliable only into the upper teens °F, mid USDA zone 8, but well worth container culture or replacing if needed. Mineral soil, full sun, and as little attention as possible for longevity. Can be shorn once or twice a year to maintain tidiness. Lamiaceae

Arroyo Grande, California
Bold perennial to 3' with woolly leaves and a strong menthol fragrance. The felted leaves are adapted to dry conditions and dampness contributes readily to fungal diseases. For this reason exercise care in placement to assure full sun and good air circulation. In Lavender Sweet Lavender, Judyth McLeod says, "[It] thoroughly dislikes heavy rains, looking miserable as a white kitten that has been caught in a storm." Deep-purple flowers appear on 3-4' stalks. Also be sure to provide excellent drainage. Hardy to 10F. Spain.
