Lavandula x intermedia Hidcote Giant

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.

We first saw this dazzling English cultivar at the Norfolk Lavender Farm near Britain’s North Sea. ‘Hidcote Giant’ bears multitudes of large squat dark buds and sizable blue-violet flowers with lilac-green calyxes atop long elegant stems. Pair with Kniphofia ‘Safranvogel’ for glowing complementary bloom color.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
