More Details

Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote' is the most floriferous of the compact lavenders, with purple-blue flowers. Incredibly reliable.

Lavenders – with my new pollinator obsessed hat on – are the perfect plants. Lavender 'Hidcote' looks good all year, has incredible scent, which lasts when dried AND is rich in pollen and nectar for much of summer so the bees and butterflies love it. Add plenty of grit before you plant 'Hidcote' if you garden on heavy clay soil like mine at Perch Hill.

These are just wonderful and the most perfect deep lavender. They are doing really well (better than anything else this year) and look great in zinc pots with pinks and whites
