I am in need of a memory jog.  I believe that this thread has been discussing 
the "lavenders" of the perennial bed, but there's also a large shrub grown in 
OK & NM -- and probably much of the SW -- that is known colloquially as the 
"lavender" bush.  It is extremely fragrant and almost impossible to kill.  

Can anyone supply its proper name?
