Cotton lavender leds itself beautifully to both formal and informal styles of gardening. Its feathery grey-green foliage can be kept neatly trimmed to form a low-growing topiary shape, or it can be left to grow to its own devices. Left unclipped, it will produce rounded, primrose-yellow flowers in mid-summer. It enjoys a sunny position in well-drained soil, making it the perfect candiate for a gravel garden. Try planting it with other sun-lovers such as lavender. In colder areas, it will need protection in winter. It is worth taking a few cuttings in late summer to overwinter indoors as an insurance policy. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
