Iboza riparia, Tetradenia riparia, Musk Bush, Misty Plume Bush, Ginger Bush, Gemmerbos, Watersalie
 Iboza riparia, Tetradenia riparia
Family: Lamiaceae / Labiatae
Musk Bush, Misty Plume Bush, Ginger Bush, Gemmerbos, Watersalie
Origin: Eastern and Southern Africa
large shrub 5-10 ftfull sunsemi-shademoderate waterwhite/off-white flowersornamental foliagefragrantethnomedicalspice or herbedibleattracts butterflies, hummingbirdsincuded in CD catalog

Very bushy and dense aromatic shrub up to 3 m in height. It is slightly succulent and has an irregular branch pattern. The stems are brown and smooth, except for the younger portions which are covered with glandular hairs and have a ruby tinge. The glandular hairs also cover both surfaces of the leaves and make them slightly sticky to the touch. The leaves are a bright green and are slightly heart shaped with the margin irregularly and bluntly toothed. The flowers range from white to lilac including some with pink flowers. The type of display which you will get depends on whether you have a male or female plant! Male and female flowers are borne on separate plants in spikes which differ in size and shape. The male flower spikes in profusion create more of the "mist" effect than the female flowers which tend to be more compact. The flowers usually appear when the plants are bare and are carried in the top section of the branches. The name ibosa was derived from the Zulu word referring to the aromatic leaves - they use this plant medicinally. The Zulu people have many uses for the plant including the relief of chest complaints, stomach ache and malaria. Inhaling the scent of the crushed leaves apparently also relieves headaches. The plant is frost tender and best suited to pot culture in colder regions. This is a rewarding garden plant which is fast growing - up to 80cm per year and which will flower in its first year. It grows easily in light, well drained and well composted soil. It prefers water in summer but not as much in winter, thus making it is a good water wise plant for summer rainfall areas. It should be pruned back hard after flowering to keep it neat and promote flowering. Plant in full sun, except in very hot areas where midday shade or light shade will be beneficial.

Lavandula angustifolia, Lavandula officinalis, Lavandula vera, Lavandula spica, Lavender, English Lavender
 Lavandula angustifolia, Lavandula officinalis, Lavandula vera, Lavandula spica
Family: Lamiaceae / Labiatae
Lavender, English Lavender
Origin: Western Mediterranean
Can be used for bonsaismall shrub 2-5 ftfull sunmoderate waterblue/lavender/purple flowersfragrantspice or herbedibleattracts butterflies, hummingbirdssubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeincuded in CD catalog

A popular plant grown for potpourri, Lavender likes to grow in full sun and well-drained soil. Hardy in zones 6-9, this plant reaches a height of up to 20 inches and a width of up to 24 inches. Bees thoroughly enjoy the pollen of Lavender. Lavender flowers June through August, however, the flowers after July tend to look "tired" during the heat of the summer months. To revive this plant, shear off all the flowers; the plant will resume its natural beauty. Lavender prefers lots of sun but will tolerate a limited amount of shade. Well-drained soil is essential, otherwise the foliage will yellow. This perennial tolerates drought quite well, but water them a bit through really dry periods, preferably not over their foliage. Fertilize sparingly if at all, because these are not particularly hungry plants.Lavender is one of the most famous of all herbs for the fragrance of its dried flowers and the oil distilled from them. Lavender grows best in rocky, dry, sunny places with an abundant amount of lime in the soil. It can be propagated by seed or cuttings. Scent is strongest in dry, sunny locations. Can be used for bonsai.

Lavandula dentata, French Lavender
 Lavandula dentata
Family: Lamiaceae / Labiatae
French Lavender
small shrub 2-5 ftfull sunsemi-shademoderate waterregular waterblue/lavender/purple flowersfragrantethnomedicalattracts butterflies, hummingbirdsincuded in CD catalog

French Lavender is not a culinary lavender and it doesn't have that great English Lavender fragrance. But, it is large and blooms from spring to frost and has a nice clean smell. However, do yourself a favor and give it a good pruning in mid summer and again in late fall. You will be rewarded with a much more attractive bush. Drought tolerant once established.

A perennial shrub, it usually grows to 1-3 ft tall and wide.

The name Papillon (Butterfly) alludes to the same charming feature.
