We are lucky to have folks as knowledgable as Andy and Melissa Van Hevelingen producing plants near our nursery. We have turned to them many times when we needed to know the history of a certain plant. We were delighted to find Andy quoted in the monograph The Genus Lavandula, by Tim Upson and Susyn Andrews, regarding Lavandula 'Betty's Blue' which was developed at another local nursery, Nichols Garden Nursery. This lavender was named for the manager of that nursery and chosen because of its dark flowers and for the fact that it dries well and can be used in potpourris. In addition to those attributes, it is compact and upright with silver-gray foliage and fairly long flowering stems which make it easy to harvest.
