Product Information

Imagine a dazzling, hardy, variegated lavender, perfect to bring your borders and containers to life with very little fuss and maintenance. Well let us introduce you to our newest beauty, the luscious lavender 'Platinum Blonde'.

With her classic blue, fragrant flowers set above brightly variegated leaves, Platinum Blonde is an unusual, must-have colour combination for your garden this year. The blue-grey leaves are edged in creamy yellow and this contrasts magnificently with the flowers, making them 'pop' to provide colour, scent and form to your garden - she really does have everything!

The perfect lavender to cope with most things that the British weather will throw at it - Platinum Blonde tolerates cold and wet as long as she's planted in free-draining soil and it simply revels in heat and drought - something that we may need to get used to in the future!

Use Lavender Blonde to make an eye-catching specimen plant on a balcony or terrace or add her to mixed containers or into borders for amazing summer-long displays.

And you don't just have to take our word for it - Platinum Blonde has won a multitude of notable awards - even before being nominated for the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year:

  • The innovation prize for the best new perennial introduction at IPM Germany - the world's biggest, premier plant and horticultural show.
  • Bronze medal in the Innovation Competition at Plantarium - one of Holland's largest exhibitions for perennials.
  • IBERflora Spain - awarded the best plant innovation of the show!

Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot, ready to plant out, Lavender 'Platinum Blonde' flowers in summer and stays compact with an eventual height of 40-50cm and width of 50cm.

Top Tips

Lavender 'Platinum Blonde' likes a place in the sun in a dry, humus-rich, well-drained soil.
Dried flowers retain their glorious scent - use them to make lavender bags or pot pourri.

Care Information

  • Drought-tolerant, lavender thrives in a sunny border, container, herb or gravel gardens.
  • Best planted from April and when the soil is warming up, ensure that the plants gets really good drainage.
  • There's no need to improve the soil as lavender thrives in any poor or moderately fertile conditions.
  • Water regularly.
  • Lavenders should be pruned every year to keep them compact.
  • Pruning:
    When flowers have faded, clip the plants back lightly to encourage more growth - cut the stems back by a few inches, but not so far that the stems are bare of live foliage, and plants will then have time to produce new shoots before winter dormancy. You can prune lightly in April if required.
