Notes:
'Blue Cushion' is a very compact lavender growing to about 16 inches with beautiful grey-green foliage smothered with blue-lavender flowers over a long period in summer. The dwarf cushioning habit is particularly valuable for those who find their other lavenders get large and leggy. Full sun, dry soils. Shear lavenders lightly in early spring just as they begin growth and again after flowering to keep tidy.

Dry grassy slopes amongst rocks, in exposed, usually parched, hot rocky situations often on calcareous soils.
