Description / Lavender 'Hidcote Blue'

Lavandula angustifolia, commonly known as English lavender, stands out for its abundant essential oils, offering heightened fragrance potency in both fresh and dried states. The cherished 'Hidcote Blue' cultivar, characterized by a more upright and compact growth habit along with darker flowers, emerges as an excellent choice for creating beautiful and aromatic hedges.

A perennial evergreen, features a delicate blue-green foliage hue and a delightful sweet fragrance, with sturdy stems supporting 2½-inch linear, downy leaves, initially opening white and transitioning to a soft gray-blue-green shade; during summer, it graces gardens with dark purple blooms, inviting butterflies and bees. Reaching heights and widths of 12 to 18 inches, this aromatic beauty adds charm to any landscape.

Use the fresh Lavender 'Hidcote Blue' blooms for candies and cakes, dry them for potpourris and sachets, and extract oils for creams and perfumes. This garden gem thrives in well-drained, slightly dry soil under full sun, blooming generously across seasons.

Grow this Lavender plant in a sunny location with well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. Boost bushier growth by trimming back in spring, and promote continued blooming by deadheading after flowering.

Lavandula has so many perks, it?s easy to grow, attracts pollinators, and its fragrance is known for its calming properties. Find expert advice on planting and care in our Lavender Care Guide.
