Fragrant silver foliage and dark violet 1″ flowers which have a strangely complex structure. On top are lavender bracts. This is an almost constant bloomer from spring to fall in our garden.
Pronunciation: lav-AN-dew-lah STOW-kass
Species Meaning: Of the Stoechades (Iles d'Hyeres)
Requires little care apart from deadheading to extend bloom season and giving it a severe haircut every year or two, otherwise it gets too large and leggy. Originating in the Mediterranean, lavender prefers hot sunny days, dry air, and non-enriched, well-drained soil.
