Cotton Lavender Santolina Lemon Fizz Hedging
Santolina Lemon Fizz (Santolina virens Lemon Fizz) Cotton Lavender
A striking new variety with golden-green foliage, Lemon Fizz has strongly aromatic narrow cypress like foliage, in mid summer the plant will be covered in creamy yellow button like flowers held on short wiry stems above the colourful foliage. This is a smaller variety of Cotton Lavender forming a neat bun shaped mound of foliage 50cm high and wide.
Santolina Lemon Fizz is a useful plant to bring colour into gaps in a sunny border, larger groups make effective low maintenance ground cover and they can also be grown in a container on a sunny patio area. Like all Cotton Lavender varieties this makes an excellent low hedging plant, let them flower for a looser, rounded informal look, or keep them more formal and clipped to bring out the bright golden foliage which could contrast nicely with other small hedging species in a knot garden.
Santolina Lemon Fizz prefers a well drained soil in full sun, these are drought resistant plants once established and need little maintenance other than a tidy up after flowering in late Summer.
