Features

notes

This Vera mini standard has been carefully trained into an extremely attractive lollypop form. Its shape makes it a natural choice for statement planting. Vera is a small, evergreen lavender, a cross between the English and Portuguese herb and has long spikes of dusky pale to dark purple flowers in summer.

Insights
