Exalting the beauty of lavender is like carrying coals to Newcastle. So let us cut down the story to a few words about its habit and cultivation.

This lavender is the main species from which other varieties come from. It is a fast growing subshrub, sometimes also classified as woody perennial, with 60-80 cm tall stems producing short, scented spikes of violet flowers from early until late summer. Evergreen, linear leaves are grey-green to blue-green in cold months and light green in warm months.

It is best grown in masses in order to fully display its colour. It is not picky about soil type provided it is well drained. It is a sun loving plant that is used to growing in dry conditions and may rot in wet soil. Cut back last year’s growth to 10-15 cm every spring to keep it bushy and compact. Fully hardy to min. -27°C (USDA 5b).
