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.
