Lavandula ‘Lisa Marie’
at Digging Dog

Lavandula

Lavender

In the Middle Ages, Lavender was a chief ingredient in the famous “Four Thieves” vinegar, and today no classic sachet or potpourri would be complete without it.

We use Lavenders in every garden we design. Dependable and drought tolerant, their strikingly handsome flowers, whether white or blue, pink, violet or purple, offer a heady aroma and an upright spiky look, while the foliage forms a pleasing mound during the off season. In the herb garden, border or rockery, they combine well with grasses, perennials or other shrubs. If the plants are cut back in late June, many cultivars will produce a second bloom in autumn.

Lavandula ‘Lisa Marie’ full sun  new plant

Introduced in 1991 by Ken Montgomery of Anderson Valley Nursery and named after his daughter, this hybrid between L. angustifolia ‘Martha Roderick’ and L. lanata retains the best qualities of both its parents. Like ‘Martha Roderick’, it is exquisitely compact, and like L. lanata, its leaves are alluringly silver and downy. The frosted gray buds open into blue-violet, making a beautiful union with Geum ‘Georgenberg’ or Teucrium chamaedrys.

Size: 18" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
