Lavender cotton is a fantastic low, mound-forming shrub with very attractive silvery blue, finely textured foliage. It is evergreen so it decorates your garden all year round. Moreover, in summer in produces masses of small, vivid yellow flowers heads on long stalks. Leaves have an interesting, spicy scent.

It looks lovely at border edges, in rockeries, and planting it next to lavender enhances flower colours of both the plants.

It needs very well drained, preferably poor soil and fully insolated location. Cut off spent flowers with their stalks and shear the plant every spring to encourage new growths from its lower parts. Fully hardy to min. -24°C (USDA zone 6), some sources even say -29°C (zone 5).
