Lovely in the Garden, the porch or in the house!Mona Lavender is a herbaceous perennial in the mint family and is a hybrid of 2 southern African parents. It’s a small shrub reaching only 1-2 feet tall and wide. The delicate looking lavender 2-lipped flowers have specks of purple and appear on spikes of purple stems. This plant starts blooming when the days get shorter in fall and will often bloom into spring. The shiny dark green leaves are ornamental with purple undersides. Pinch the stems to maintain a bushy rounded form.Mona Lavender prefers partial shade in humusy moist soil with good drainage. Grow indoors or place outside in spring where it can receive morning sun to full shade and where you can enjoy the dainty blooms and exquisite foliage.
