    A compact, bushy variety of English Lavender which is covered with masses of tightly packed, rich purple flowers in summer. These contrast beautifully with the silver-grey foliage. Because of its neat, compact form, this is an excellent variety to create low hedges in cottage or formal gardens. The flowers are loved by bees, and they are good for cutting and drying.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded. Carefully trim back in April, taking care not to cut into old wood
