Green Santolina (Santolina Virens) Herb in 1 Litre Pot.

Santolina Virens,  Green Santolina  or green cotton lavender or Holy Flax as it is also known is a native of the Mediterranean region. This hardy evergreen shrub prefers light well-drained soil and a sunny position, and once established will produce a showy display of green foliage and sunny yellow button flowers in mid to late summer. Remove the faded flower-heads along with any straggly shoots in autumn. In early-spring cut back the flowered shoots to within 2.5cm of the old growth. It may require some frost protection in particularly exposed sites. Given the right conditions it will grow into a compact, rounded shrub with dense, well-branched, aromatic foliage. this is a very compact version of the cotton lavender and can be used to soften the edges of hard landscaping or clipped to form a very low hedge/edging plant.

Herb Usage

The leaves have a chamomile like aroma, and the dried foliage is used to blend in herbal tobaccos, and both leaves and flowers are a favourite in pot pourri. Dried cotton lavender leaves are a successful moth deterrent.
