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

    Blue-green foliage forms compact, cushion-like mounds that are topped with a profusion of upright flowerspikes for several months from midsummer. The rich blue flowers are extremely attractive to bees and butterflies, make pretty additions to posies and can be dried for pot pourri. Useful for creating a low hedge, providing year-round interest in a mixed border or potting up on a sunny patio. Similar to 'Munstead', but with a much more compact habit.

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

    Comments about Lavandula angustifolia Blue Cushion ('Schola') (PBR):

    I purchased this type of lavender 15 years ago and it was always excellent as it remained shorter in height than other varieties and not did not flop everywhere. I needed to move the lavender to another position in the garden and decided to start again with new plants. I was thrilled to still find this variety on Crocus. The three plants arrived in beautiful packing that ensured they were not damaged. They were lovely healthy plants that flowered very well after delivery in the first year and I am confident they will flourish for many years. (The Customer Helpline was also very helpful).

    Comments about Lavandula angustifolia Blue Cushion ('Schola') (PBR):

    I bought 12 of these to replace French lavenders that had succumbed to a cold snap in late winter 2015-16. I also wanted more petite plants along the edge of my path and these fit the bill. The only problem has been die-back, I think owing to mold, on the plants that are more in shade, plus some very wet weather

    Lavenders - aromatic sun-lovers

    Aromatic plants produce their own fragrant oil and they use it as a sunscreen to prevent scorching, so anything aromatic or silvery needs full sun. Although drought-tolerant, these plants rely on a deep root system and once established they will never nee
