An herbaceous perennial, this small evergreen shrub is best suited to a hot and dry environment and grows best in full sun. Grey-green leaves form attractive mounds and are topped with yellow button flowers in summer.


Cotton lavender plants make an attractive low-growing hedge, or as feature plants, especially well suited to xeriscaping. The plants repel insects, particularly white cabbage butterflies, and the dried leaves are strewn in clothes to repel silverfish moths. While not used medicinally much these days it does have antiseptic, vermifuge and antispasmodic properties. Crushed leaves bring instant relief to stings and bites. The leaves are used sparingly in cooking, especially for broths, sauces or with grains.
