Despite its name of 'Cotton Lavender' this plant is not a Lavender at all
(as its Latin name shows). It is a hardy perennial, up to 18 inches tall,
that has Silver-Grey, aromatic foliage with small yellow flowers in Summer (sometimes called 'Batchelor's Buttons').
It makes a good small hedge, much used in knot gardens.
It is good against insects which do not like its aroma.
It prefers a sunny position in well drained or sandy soil
and is ideal for large pots or tubs.
In former times it was used a a remedy
for poisonous bites and internal parasites.
The plants are grown in 9cm(3inch) pots, which are not included in the item to keep postage reasonable. Included in the item , where available, is the coloured label as seen in the photograph, which gives cultural and usage tips.
