Lavandula angustifolia Violet Intrigue

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.

Bred by New Zealand Lavender authority Virginia McNaughton, this aptly named colorful cultivar delivers ultrascented, vibrantly violet corollas and saturated violet-blue calyxes on staunch, long straight stems that are ideal for cutting. Silvery green leaves dress its upright bushy profile, and with Helichrysum italicum, Horehound and Sideritis nearby, they craft a brilliant association. (pp#15,344)

Blooms June – July.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.
