Lavandula angustifolia ‘Buena Vista’
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 angustifolia ‘Buena Vista’ full sun

‘Buena Vista’ tops many gardeners’ favorite ornamental Lavender list for its unequaled graceful stance plus oodles of sweetly fragrant, saturated purple flowers, blooming both early summer and fall. Not as densely arranged and somewhat more relaxed than most angustifolia species, long slender spikes carry pubescent intensely dark violet-blue calyces coupled with large, vibrant purplish blueberry-colored corollas above a bushy medium-sized grayish green foundation. Introduced by Don Roberts of Premier Botanicals, this irresistible, seldom offered English Lavender dons year-round classic good looks, yields abundant commercial-grade oil and makes a savory seasoning to boot.

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
