Lavandula angustifolia ‘Imperial Gem’
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.

We favor this Lavender for its richly colored blooms. Topping grayish green, somewhat relaxed stems, vibrant violet petals and fuzzy dark purple calyxes form a broadly cylindrical head distinguished by a separate whorl of flowers at its base. A well-formed, midsized gray-green bush, ‘Imperial Gem’ delivers a dazzling effect, especially when planted en masse.

Size: 2' 0" high x 20" wide; hardy to zone 5.
