Description

English lavender has been a mainstay of herb gardens for many years. Despite its common name, it is not in fact native to England, but comes primarily from the Mediterranean region. It was reportedly named English lavender because of its ability to grow well in the English climate. This “true lavender” is commercially planted for harvesting its oils for use in perfumes. English lavender varieties are more often used for culinary purposes than other types of lavender. Lavender flowers and foliage are also popular additions to sachets and potpourris. This is a semi-woody plant that typically grows to 1.5-3’. Narrow, gray-green leaves on square stems. Flowers appear in terminal spikes in late spring to early summer. Both foliage and flowers are highly aromatic. Leaves are evergreen in warm winter climates. ‘Hidcote’ is a compact mounded form typically growing to 20” tall and featuring deep purple-blue flowers and gray foliage. May be kept dense with regular pruning.
