A variety that's highly regarded for hedging, ornamental and mass planting; its contrasting dark blue corollas and purple-violet bracts are a real feature. Covered with lavender-blue flower spikes for many months in summer, its foliage is still a pleasing feature when it's not flowering. Long stems; great for picking.
An English lavender selected for its flower colour and habit. Dark violet flowers appear from early summer and last until late March. Very compact form ideal for patios, picking, drying and pot pourii. Looks great planted as an avenue or small hedge where its flowers can be appreciated en masse.
Major puts on quite a show from early in spring and into summer. It has a profusion of large, plump, flower heads. They’re so full that they invite squeezing, and this of course releases the refreshing lavender aroma. It has strong stems and is always tidy - one of the best patio plants we've seen.
Provocatif is an very apt name for this startling introduction of New Zealand's Virginia McNaughton; when we first saw it in our trial grounds its violet-pink flowers shone brilliantly in the spring sunshine. Flowers during spring and autumn, and looks spectacular en masse.
An upright grower with fragrant grey-green leaves & masses of deep purple flowers. Prefers full sun, well-drained soils. Lime prior to planting. Ideal for containers, rockeries, path edges, or as an easily trimmed formal hedge. Prune after flowering. Grows 50x50cm.
An exciting N.Z.introduction with a compact upright growth habit. Long stems support large flower buds topped with stunning long luminous electric blue wings. Ideally grown in an open sunny situation, as a feature plant or stunning hedge. Grows 80x80cm.
Sidonie's something different when it comes to lavenders. It's free flowering, quick-growing and with Australian origins, tolerant of more humidity than many others. Its showy forked flowers are held atop long stems, and their blue-purple colouring is iridescent, especially during winter and spring. Its fragrance is also different - fresh and novel.
It's hard to not to rave about this exciting English lavender from Virginia McNaughton. In our trials it shone like no other with bright iridescent violet-blue flowers on strong stems and a nicely rounded upright bush with dense mid-green foliage.
An Australian native that has reddish stems and dark coppery-red leaves; great for background colour and form in both garden and vase. In summer, 2cm white flowers with yellow centres smother the bush - so dense they give the impression of the bush being 'snow-topped'.
A great garden or border plant growing to form a tidy bush around 2.5m x 1m. Its spot flowers from winter, and in spring vibrant red flowers smother the bush. A flower show that improves as the plant matures.
