Growing & using Woolly Lavender
This Woolly Lavender shrub is getting ready to burst into bloom. Because we have pruned it properly and given it enough space, it will bloom on all sides like a porcupine.
Woolly Lavender is the last lavender to bloom here so it extends our lavender season. Truly silver, Woolly Lavender is a bit more tender than the L. angustifolias or the L. x intermedias. Make sure it has good drainage and it will make a beautiful addition to the garden with its smoky, dark purple blossoms. It looks great planted with dark green foliage plants like Rosemary or Lemon Verbena.
Woolly Lavender makes a great addition to our Zone 8-11 Fragrant Herb Garden Six Pack.
You might try Richard Gray Lavender. Richard Gray has beautiful gray foliage like Woolly Lavender but it also has a nice dark purple flower.
