A stunning flowering, evergreen French lavender with a delightful fragrance – both from the grey-green leaves and lilac flowers!
Perfect for placing either side of doorways, pathways and entrances or for the patio, lavender is perfect in many a scenario and French lavender is one of the prettiest and eye-catching varieties thanks to its lilac bracts that sit atop of its purple flower head.
The silvery grey foliage and blooms are packed with a heady scent, the dark purple flowers will provide you a colourful spectacle from early to mid-summer and are a magnet to bees, butterflies and other beneficial creatures, which will have your garden buzzing with life.
Once established, a lavender plant is extremely drought tolerant. With very little maintenance needed, you can keep it in great shape with a little pruning twice a year; trim lightly in mid to late summer, removing spent flower heads. Prune again in early spring, removing about 2.5cm of growth.
