Lavandula 'Ballerina' (Peter Carter, 1997) is one of a group of new crosses between L. pedunculata and L. stoeches with L. viridis. Because of this heritage, they need lots of sun and excellent drainage. Surprisingly, they have proven to be good garden plants here in the Portland area. The foliage is gray green. The bracted floral spikes are green and dark violet. The aroma has a rich camphor-like smell.

Apirl to May; August to September.  60 in. x 60 in.
