Every garden deserves this lovely lavender. This lavender?is perfect for drying, with very bright two-tone blooms and an intense fragrance you will love. Make it part of the perennial garden or shrub border this season and enjoy it for years to come!
The blooms on this plant are actually long, violet bracts topped with a few large petals of lavender. This creates a lovely bicoloured look that sets it?apart. Even the stems are attractive, coloured a bright magenta that holds well in the summer sun.
Expect the first blooms in late spring or early summer. They last a long time, luring bees and butterflies in for lengthy visits, and their bold colour complements the subdued greyish-green tones of the small, neat (and also highly fragrant) leaves!
This plant reaches about 30 inches high and 20 to 25 inches wide, with dozens of flowering stems all summer. It appreciates an early spring trim to increase its bushiness and replace its rather fragile stems with new growth.
It needs?dry, very well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine are the only essentials. Excellent edging a path, fronting the shrub border, or accenting any perennial planting.
