‘Meerlo’ Lavender has proven itself to be one of the most heat and humidity tolerant, as well as water-wise, lavenders we have ever grown. This hardy perennial from the Southern Living Plant Collection has brightly variegated green and cream white foliage that produces a charming, fragrant aroma. During the summer, this Lavender produces multitudes of pale purple-blue flowers. After the blooms have faded, Meerlo should be trimmed in order to keep its compact form. This is a perfect plant for container gardening, either as a stand alone or in a mixed container. It also makes a perfect addition to landscapes, flowerbeds, borders, low hedges, or even as a specimen plant. There’s no wrong way to use this versatile evergreen, however we recommend having it near outdoor living areas where the rich aromas can be enjoyed!
