A versatile little hedging shrub, its aromatic silvery foliage contrasts well with many other plants and the profusion of button shaped yellow flowers in summer adds to its appeal.
Cotton Lavender (Santolina chamaecyparissus) is a popular option for those looking for neat, appealing hedging plants. This plant variation is a compact, dwarf hedge option with aromatic leaves held on soft, pale-coloured branches. This, paired with the bright yellow pom pom flowers which appear in mid to late summer, make Cotton Lavender plants a great choice for those looking to create something unique and appealing when it comes to the appearance of their outdoor spaces.
Another appeal of these hardy shrubs is their easy-to-grow properties and typically disease-free lifespan. They thrive in sunny areas with well drained soil; for best results, it is recommended that Cotton Lavender plants are positioned in a sunny area, with soil that is not too rich. To extend the life of your Cotton Lavender hedging plants it is a good idea to trim them back come autumn to remove any dead flowers. This will also help to keep your hedge nice and dense and compact for years to come.
