Plant Details

A more compact, neat Lavender with rich blue flowers.

Native of the Mediterranean, where it grows on rocky hills and scents the air for miles on hot summer's days. L. Angustifolia was probably brought to Britain by the Romans who liked to perfume their baths with infusions of the leaves and flowers, and it has become known as Old English Lavender. Flowers in July and August.  

All lavenders are loved by bees and butterflies.

Throughout history lavender has been grown for its medicinal properties and its essential oil is still in huge demand worldwide.

Lavender is also used in many recipes such as desserts, baking, cool drinks and cocktails.

Height and spread: 45cm x 45cm

Common name(s): Lavender, English Lavender

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
