Don't know a lot about this plant just recently purchased,apparantly can be a vigorous grower 6" per annum,3-5' in height and same in width,beautiful lavander flowers,and lance shaped variegated leaves,now one web site suggested the flowers are toxic to bees and make them produce something called "mad honey"????On occasion can revert and send out a solid green chute prune immediatly,very prone to sun burn !
