Neutral martieinct On Jan 29, 2006, martieinct from Enfield, CT wrote:

Neutral so far as I just obtained a rooted cutting.

The foliage looks very similar to, of all things, Mimosa pudica (sensitive plant).

On the parent, I did not notice any feathering of the flower bract though it is extremely tight, so I'm curious as to why it is commonly referred to as a "French" lavender when the botanical clearly is describing dentate foliage only and nothing appears to be close to L. stoechas.
