First time visitor to French Provance will be astonished seeing the endless fields glowing with deep purple colour. Lavenders are grown there like corn or potatoes here. The magnificent view is often linked with a question 'can we do something similar at home, too? ', and the answer is positive: YES! Lavenders are hardy and low maintenance plants that will thrive in any well-drained soil in full sun.

Essence Purple is a compact lavender variety which forms an evenly rounded bush without fallen stems. It is about 40 cm tall and still very compact and very dense. Fragrant flowers are rich lavender violet and appear from June until August. Leaves are evergreen, linear, light green and very slightly silver.

We recommend cutting the plant every spring leaving about a third or maximum half its size to maintain a dense and profusely flowering shrub. You can remove the stalks with spent flowers after flowering to make the clump look neat again, or even sooner if you wish to dry the flowers (hung upside down in an airy room). It will grow in most types of soil provided it is well-drained and not water-logged. The only thing it needs is a sunny location. Fully hardy to min. -27°C (USDA 5b).
