We've got a big planting (perhaps 30" high and wide, and 4 ft long) of
Spanish lavender in the parking lot at the nursery.  It's a real
stopper...  everytime I see someone coming toward me pointing out the
front window, I just say, "that big grey plant with purple flowers?
Spanish lavender, out in the herb section."  ....  ;-)  What I especially
appreciate about it is that it's not nearly as overpowering as say,
Munstead or French lavender.
