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.

Cultivated by the renown British nursery, Hopleys in the early 1990s, this bushy Lavender strikes a hard-to-miss stance as dashing gray flanneled leaves closely line its large upright frame. Blue-tipped green buds give way to long, slender conical heads composed of fuzzy dark bluish calyxes and deep mauve-violet flowers. With such inherent good looks, ‘Lullingstone Castle’ makes a stellar hedge or a centerpiece amid fellow Mediterraneans in a dry area.

Blooms June – September.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 6.

“Very nice web site.  I am especially pleased to see your large selection of perennial herbs with the extensive narratives.  We are building up a garden...after Katrina destroyed our old home.”
