Description / Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue'

Lavender angustifolia (English lavender) is one of the richest in essential oils, meaning more fragrance power both fresh and dried. And the beloved Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue' cultivar has a more erect, compact habit and darker flowers than many others, making it ideal for hedges.

The fresh flowers can be crystalized and used in candies and cakes; dried flowers are used in potpourris and sachets; oils are used in creams and perfumes. But most important, Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue' is a fine garden performer, prepared to flower over a long season in well-drained, slightly dry soil receiving full sun.

An evergreen perennial, Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue' has a subtle blue-green color and a sweet fragrance. Reaching 12- to 18-inches-high and wide, it boasts 2½-inch, linear, downy leaves on strong stems. The leaves open white then turn a pale gray-blue-green color. In summer they are topped by dark purple blooms that attract butterflies and bees.

Grow Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue' in a well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil in an open, sunny spot. Trim back in spring to encourage bushier growth; also deadhead after flowering.
