Rate of Growth:
This is a culinary herb which is often used in cooking. It produces silvery-gray foliage with a unique, pungent flavor. Cut back old, woody stems periodically to encourage new, succulent growth. Can tolerate cold temperatures and dry conditions but does not do well in cold, wet soils. Provide a raised bed, sandy, well-drained soil and full sunlight. Lavendar flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
