A beauty with big, silver purple blooms across the whole, dome shaped plant. More compact than most of the Ruffles but an equal match for flower power.
Well branched, heat and dry tolerant, disease resistant plants with fragrant foliage and plenty of flashy flowers.
Bred in Australia over a period of 25 years of continual trials, these revolutionary lavenders are now taking the world by storm. They are compact, tolerant of coastal conditions, look wonderful on the patio in a pot or utilised as a low growing hedge, as edging or for a flash of colour as a garden specimen.
The leaves velvety to the touch and are wonderfully aromatic, with the classic lavender perfume. The flowers have an impressive vase life and can be dried as well.
Lavenders are easy care plants with few insect or disease problems. Dead head the plants regularly for constant flowers, OR cut back hard after the first flush of flowers, (around mid to late December) then fertilise for a repeat bloom into autumn.
Lavender grows best in full sun to part shade. In warmer climates it will fair better with some protection from the hot afternoon sun. Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Water to establish then only if rainfall is low. Well suited to container growth, where they will require a little more care in watering regularly, potting mix is perfectly drained so can dry out quickly and while the plants are tough, they are likely to suffer if left to dry out regularly.
