  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This vigorous English lavender produces masses of slender spikes of vivid violet flowers between July and August, above grey-green leaves. It makes a gorgeous, flowering, informal hedge, especially along a path, where its fragrance can be appreciated. It works well in a Mediterranean garden, or clipped into a formal sphere for a contemporary look. The flower-spikes are also a magnet for bees and other nectar-loving insects.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded to retain a compact shape. Carefully trim back in April, taking care not to cut into old wood.
