  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Flower colour: blue with creamy-white flags

    Unusual spikes of large blue flowerheads topped with creamy-white flags throughout spring and summer, and aromatic silvery-grey leaves. An exciting new introduction to the French lavender range which has a compact yet upright habit, making it perfect for all gardens and in particular patio pots.
    As it's borderline hardy it is best grown in a container in colder areas of the country and should be over-wintered in a cool greenhouse or conservatory.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded. Avoid early spring pruning as flowers will be delayed. Keep dry during the winter

    Growing plants for a wedding

    Dear Crocus, I am a very happy customer ..... I love your site, plants and service. I learnt about you first from Arabella Lennox-Boyd. But now I am writing for some advice please. My sister is getting married in Oxfordshire on the last weekend of May. I would love to grow the flowers for the wedding. I have a big garden with empty beds and a green house at my disposal. Could you give me some advice on types of cut flowers that would be in bloom at the end of May? Some pointers as a place to start my research and buying would be fantastic. Thank you very much, Best wishes, Kate

      Hello Kate, It will be a little hit and miss as a lot will depend on the weather, but the following plants should be in flower around that time. Choisya ternata
      Osmanthus x burkwoodii
      Viburnum x carlcephalum
      Convallaria majalis Iris Paeonia Euphorbia palustris
      Ceanothus Skylark
      and if we have a hot start to the summer a couple of roses or some of the earlier lavenders may have started too. I hope this gives you lots of ideas. Helen Plant Doctor
