IS THIS LAVENDER?
Can anyone advise please?
We moved to a house with a lovely garden 2 years ago. We have tidied it all up and cut back a lot of the bushes last year. and they have all come back looking well except one. There is one which I thought was a lavender as it has leaves which end up being pale to silvery green when fully grown which is later in the year -about now- and also has a purple flower. It smells like lavender . I had cut it right back because the branches were all really old but I thought I had killed it until some new growth appeared not long ago which still have tiny leaves but are still growing.I have looked everywhere for a plant the same in every garden centre I can find but I cannot find this plant anywhere. I wonder if it is a lavender at all. The leaves are a different shape to any lavender plant I have seen in the garden centres.Does anyone have an idea what this plant might be ?
