A remarkable early flowering selection with a compact habit and deep blue flowers. A mainstay of herbal gardens, blue waves of lavender are wondrous in patio containers, flowerbeds, and massed in the landscape. Native to the Mediterranean region, lavender’s leaves and flowers are often harvested for potpourri and sachets; fragrant oil derived from the plants is used in perfumes. Semi-woody plant, growing to 14 inch will look its densest, freshest best with regular pruning. Photo compilation courtesy of Burpee.
