Lavandula 'Hidcote' is one of the most popular of all the L. angustifolia selections, this was originally brought into the nursery trade in England in the 1920's. Our customers ask for it because they know it forms a compact upright shrub with an overall gray appearance and that the foliage and flowers smell the way they think lavender should. The dense spikes of violet flowers are very attractive.

Summer.  9 in. x 10 in.

Violet flowers

Sun     Zones 6, 7, 8, 9
This is a cultivar of Lavandula angustifolia. Lavenders need full sun and very good drainage. Because of our rainy winters, we amend our soil with 1/4 ten gravel and top dress with the same to keep plant stems and foliage from resting on wet soil.
