Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote' Blue (Lavender)
Old favorite Lavender! Popular additions to sachets and potpourris. A free-flowering dwarf lavender variety that has silver-grey leaves and dense spikes of deep purple flower spikes in late spring and summer.
'Hidcote Blue' is great for a dwarf hedge, edging, or for massing.
Best grown in rocky, dry, and sunny locations. Remove faded flowers to promote continued bloom. Fragrant purple flower spikes appear June through August. Blue-green foliage has a very compact, erect habit, shorter than the original Hidcote variety. Use rock mulch instead of wood to reduce humidity. Remove faded flowers to promote continued bloom.
Oils harvested for use in perfumes.
