Hidcote Lavender

Lavandula angustifolia. An historic favorite of British royalty, Hidcote was grown en masse by palace gardeners for brewing with sugar or honey into refreshing drinks. Growing 18" to 24" tall, this easy growing variety has very dense, long, dark purple flower spikes. Besides dream pillows, sachets and Lavender wands, Lavender is great in modern kitchens too! Horticultural zones 4-8. (OP.)

  • Information
  • A perennial, evergreen shrub from the Mediterranean, Lavender is cultivated for its wondrously aromatic flower spikes for garden display, culinary use and aromatherapy. Sun-and warmth-loving Lavender is best raised as transplants sown indoors 8 to 10 weeks prior to setting out after the last spring frost date. It must be planted in well-draining soil, for it detests excessive moisture. Add its romantic blooms to biscotti, pound cake, peach jam or crème brûlée (link to Hurricane Restaurants' exquisite Lavender Crème Brûlée recipe below). Bee friendly. Deer resistant. Perennial.

    Average seed life: 1 year.
