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.
