Lavenders help "smooth-out" the garden, and SAN LEANDRO produces instant clumps. A lavender of good form and tremendous bud count and branching. One-year clumps produce many increases with 5 and 6 stalks each! [Joe Ghio, “The Eye of the Beholder,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 199 (October 1970): 43.]
