This cross between L. 'Mitcham Grey' and 'Irene Doyle' was named for Professor A.O. Tucker who taught at Delaware State University. Lavandula 'Tucker's Early Purple' (DeBaggio, 1993) is compact and upright and comes into bloom early with a good repeat in the fall if tidied up. The very fragrant flowers are excellent for drying.

June; Autumn.  2 ft. x 3 ft.

Dark Violet Blue flowers

Sun     Zones 6-8
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.
