Lavandula stoechas Willow Vale

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.

Introduced by David Tristram of England, this vigorous Lavender is named for its wispy gray-green foliage, which creates a delicate veil over the strong, upright branches. The showy deep blue-violet flowers are crowned with a tuft of purple petal-like bracts, and bloom earlier than the intermedia varieties.

Blooms April-August

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 7.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
