Dense spikes of fragrant, pale to deep purple flowers appear in summer above the mounds of steely, grey-green foliage. This English lavender makes a fabulous informal hedge and is perfect for a sunny, well-drained site. The fragrant flower-spikes are highly attractive to bees and other beneficial insects, while the aromatic flowers and leaves can be used for making pot-pourri.
- Garden care: Cut back the stalks after the flowers have faded. Carefully trim back in April, taking care not to cut into old wood.
