Low growing, low water, evergreen, & SUPER EASY! The leaves & flowers of this versatile herb can be used for cooking, baking, tea, & aromatherapy! Grows 6-8” tall & around 1’ wide. Small lightest-lavender blooms borne in April or May are mega bee magnets. Often goes Winter dormant, but returns reliably in spring. Plant in full sun & provide good drainage for a happy plant. Makes an attractive edging plant for an herb garden. Wonderful in containers!
