Lavandula angustifolia ‘Victorian Amethyst’
at Digging Dog

Lavandula

Lavender

In the Middle Ages, Lavender was a chief ingredient in the famous “Four Thieves” vinegar, and today no classic sachet or potpourri would be complete without it.

We use Lavenders in every garden we design. Dependable and drought tolerant, their strikingly handsome flowers, whether white or blue, pink, violet or purple, offer a heady aroma and an upright spiky look, while the foliage forms a pleasing mound during the off season. In the herb garden, border or rockery, they combine well with grasses, perennials or other shrubs. If the plants are cut back in late June, many cultivars will produce a second bloom in autumn.

As opulent as the gemstone, this English Lavender shimmers with amethyst-colored corollas set off by dark purple calyxes. Its winsome habit features a compact mass of young greenish gray leaves maturing to frosted silver, while the pretty blooms perched on short flowering stems bestow a soft old-fashioned feel.

Blooms June – July.

Size: 2' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
