Thumbelina Leigh Lavender Herb - Perennial - Gallon Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
LAVANDULA: An indispensable member of the herb family, used for perfumes and potpourri, its ornamental, compact habit along with gray-green scented foliage make it a welcome addition to the perennial border.
Small but mighty, this cutie is extremely aromatic! The robust petite habit is neat and compact. Lavender purple flower wands are more plump and round. Loves a hot dry site.
Run your fingers through the foliage when strolling through the garden for an absolutely soothing scent. Lavandula Thumbelina Leigh with its small stature makes a charming edger. Grows up to 15".
Best in full sun and well-drained soil. Good drainage and air circulation is essential to success. In clay soils, may benefit from planting in raised beds. Cut back by 1/3 to 1/2 in spring when new foliage appears. Do not cut back in fall. These woody plants do not like to be divided. Sometimes stems root where they touch the soil and these plantlets can be transplanted in spring. May benefit from gravel mulch.
