Ah lavender....love the aromatic smell and all it's uses....
I grow lavender in my side garden and cultivate it.
But here is a new one that I had never seen till
My daughter brought home this topiary.
I hunted all the local garden centers
and came up empty handed.
So to my delight when she went to ST.JACOB'S
market this spring she picked me up.......
Lavandula stoechas Anouk
Known as Spanish Lavender .......
This beautiful specimen grows to 16" tall.
Once the first flush of flowers is over you prune it back 50% , new
growth will produce fresh flowers and they will continue on till the fall.
You can keep it indoors or plant outside.
To be sure mine survives I'm keeping it inside come the fall.
If you happen to stop by, leave me a message
I love hearing from you!!
