Cotton Lavender 'Lemon Fizz'(Santolina rosmarinifolia 'Lemon Fizz') Herb in 9cm Pot.
Lavender Cotton 'Lemon Fizz' is a native of the Mediterranean region. This hardy shrub prefers light well-drained soil and a sunny position, it dislikes winter wetness. Once established it will produce a showy display of vivid yellow to acid/green foliage which is pinnate ie like needles which look similar to Rosemary hence its name. It has pale 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 2.5 cm 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 approx 50cm tall by 1m wide ultimately. This variety is useful for ground cover or as an edging plant for the herb garden or sunny border.
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.
