What did I just buy

mkmagee(Z6)May 4, 2012

I always swear I won't do it, but I always return from the garden center with unplanned purchases. This time, I don't even know what I got. The tag simply says Butterfly Green Summer. I googled that to know avail and figure it's more an adjective than a name. It's green butterfly loving plant that blooms in summer? I asked someone there who said it was a scabiosa, but I have butterfly blue and pink mist and it doesn't look like those although I guess it could be another type.

Anyway, if anyone who could tell me what I just bought 3 of, I'm very thankful

Hello :)
Wouldn't it be a tiny bit easier to ask someone at the garden center?
I have no horticulture training/education, I am just a passionate gardener but this plant is pretty common and easy to ID.
Someone at that garden center should know it's a LAVANDULA.
But I can also admit, IDing plants on forums is also FUN :)

This time of year, many employees at garden centers are hired to man the cash register, deadhead, water...and that's about it. Any ID from them would be suspect.
