Who doesn't love Lavender? Used since time immemorial as a medicinal herb, an insect repellent, an aromatic oil and a general all round house-hold essential especially when there was a bit of strewing* to be done. The Romans and Greeks used Lavender when bathing and that is the origin of the botanical name Lavandula (la-van-dew-la) which comes from the Latin word lavare meaning to bathe or wash. Lavender's natural home is the Mediterranean region, the Middle East and India.

Lavandula. An unusual Lavender with cream flowers tinged with green. The foliage is aromatic and the overall habit is quite compact and sturdy. Plenty of flowers in spring - a good Lavender for the mixed border. Plant in the sun in well drained soil and trim lightly after flowering. Evergreen.

This lavender was a chance seedling found in a Waikato garden called 'Chilliswood' which is probably a natural cross between L. viridis and L. stoechas i.e. you can blame the bees for this one!

Use for low hedges, container planting, topiary work or just plant amongst your other treasures in the mixed border. A great little Mediterranean lavender that seldom disappoints.
