One of the most popular herbs for the garden! Shrub-like, evergreen perennial with intensely fragrant needle-like leaves used fresh or dried for cooking, aromatic oils and vinegars, medicinal teas, sachets, and wreaths. Individual branches are held upright at various heights, creating a tight but interestingly irregular habit. Long-lasting, lavender flowers bloom late winter through late spring, covering plants with an early season display. Plants often give a second lighter flush of flowers in late summer. Tolerates some drought and salt spray. Attracts butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
This is a tender perennial that should be grown in containers or dug up, potted, and brought inside for winter.
