This lavender has purple blooms on long stems making 'Silver Sands' perfect for bouquets as well as potpourri and sachets. The fragrance is intense and a little lemony. Silvery gray leaves. 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.
