Silver Mist English Lavender
Perennial with Silver Foliage and Lavender Flowers
Silver Mist Lavender is an ornamental perennial with unique foliage and delicate flowers. It looks great planted en masse along a driveway or sidewalk, and would certainly have an eye-catching effect when scattered throughout your perennial bed. It would also be a great choice for your patio containers. Your Silver Mist is a gem among Lavenders.
Not only does it possess the usual sought-after lavender flowers, but it also has uncommon foliage. Long before the flowers appear, your Silver Mist will branch out to form an ethereal vision in your yard. The white/silver foliage will seem to float like a “silver mist” suspended in your garden. It’s a breathtaking sight that is only improved upon when mid-summer brings your first Lavender blossoms. The tiny blue flowers cling to the tall stalks, a prolific and hardy bloom for both indoors and out. You can count on your Silver Mist to continue the show well into fall. Lavender is valued for a variety of reasons, and your Silver Mist is no exception.
Lavender is treasured for its scent and flowers, used for everything from medicinal purposes to craft projects. Your Silver Mist’s foliage even has an herb-scented aroma to fancy-up your garden ambiance. Silver Mist is perfect for those small spaces in the garden where you’d like something showy, but don’t have a lot of room. In milder climates, it’s evergreen, and in others will reliably perform from spring until frost. It’s drought and heat tolerant, and even the rabbits and deer will pass it by.
