(Spanish Lavender, French Lavender) Woody perennial native to the Mediterranean, Spain and Morocco. The densely-packed spikes rise to about 2 feet tall, tufted with purple, petal-like bracts. They look to me like tiny sails set to the wind. Plants prefer full sun and a dry to mesic, well-drained soil. Commonly grown in open fields or as landscape plants, mellowing the corners and curbs between buildings, driveways and sidewalks. They are tough to the sun and should be trimmed back in the fall to prevent large amounts of snow from accumulating on them. Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart.
Potted plant, certified organically grown
