Cotton Lavender Virens is a native of the Mediterannean region, and has been popular in the Western world since the 16th Century. This hardy evergreen shrub prefers light shady soil and a sunny position, and once established will produce a showy display of green foliage and bright yellow button flowers in mid to late summer.

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.

If planted at 20cm spacing, in a staggered row, cotton lavender will clip into a neat hedge and has been used in knot gardens and to edge borders for centuries.

Dried cotton lavender leaves are a successful moth deterrent
