LAVANDULIFOLIA

LAVANDULIFOLA.,

Unlike lavanduloides this salvia can be found in reference books as it has been known in Spain for quite a long time.    Lavandulifolia is one of those whose foliage looks like the herb sage (salvia officinalis)  with mauve flowers but on a smaller scale.  Lavandulifolia only grows around 40cm high.

Wendy Smith had a variation appear which could be a longer flowering plant.

All these grey sages don’t like heat and moisture together and insist on well drained soils.

Lavandulifolia begins to flower early in October.
