Design Ideas: 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.

Thrives in average to lean, loose, fast-draining, slightly alkaline soil. Benefits from a gravel mulch. Plant with crowns slightly above soil level. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Prune back by one-half after flowering to encourage rebloom.

History

Oil rich lavender has long been used in bathing so it's scent is an age old favorite for bed and bath preparations, fragrances and cosmetics.

Wonderful Border Plant
by David, June 22, 2018

This dwarf lavender makes a visually stunning border plant for foundation plantings. It compact habit and captivating and long lasting flowering, plus easy care provide a go-to method of defining edges while not detracting from larger foundation shrubs and perennials. And Monrovia is hands down the best source I have found.
