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


    Dense spikes of fragrant, rose-pink flowers appear in summer above slender, steely, grey-green foliage. It makes a gorgeous, flowering, informal hedge, especially along a path, where its fragrance can be appreciated. It also works well in a gravel garden, or clipped into a formal sphere for a contemporary look. The cloud-like effect of its soft pink flowers means it looks particularly good with roses, or as part of a cottage garden scheme. The flower-spikes are highly attractive to bees and other beneficial insects.

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

    Which Lavenderis best for border edging and what size plants?

    Hi I am at the moment pulling out some very shabby Lavender which was edging two borders. I would like to replace them but I am not sure which would be the best variety to use (I inherited them with the house and can't tell what they were). I would also appreciate some advice on how far apart to plant them and whether it would be better to buy the bigger more mature plants or samller plants? Thanks in advance for any guidance you can give me. Katie

      Hello Katie, All Lavenders do well as hedging, but as the angustifolias are hardier, I would opt for this type. If you want a taller hedge and you don't mind being a little patient, then I would opt for the smaller pots of Lavandula angustifolia. If however you want a more compact hedge, then L. angustifolia Munstead or L. angustifolia Hidcote would be a better option. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
