Lavandula lanata

provided by wikipedia EN

Lavandula lanata, woolly lavender, is a species of flowering plant in the mint family Lamiaceae, native to southern Spain. An evergreen dwarf shrub growing to 1 m (3.3 ft) tall and broad, it is noted for the pronounced silver woolly hairs on its leaves, whence the Latin specific epithet lanata. The deep violet purple flowers are borne on narrow spikes, and give off the familiar lavender scent.

L. lanata is cultivated in temperate zones for its attractive appearance and fragrance.[1] It is hardy in mild and coastal areas, tolerating temperatures down to about −5 °C (23 °F), but preferring a warm, sheltered location in full sun. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.[2][3]
