Lavandula angustifolia ‘Ellagance Snow’

English Lavender

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.315.860

Lavender is actually a low-growing shrub, native to the Mediterranean region. The fragrant flowers and foliage make it a favourite for herb gardens and in the perennial border. Will also grow fine in tubs or containers, but in colder regions the plants may then need shelter for the winter. The ‘Ellagance’ Series of Lavender is compact and flowers the first year. This selection produces grey-green leaves with spikes of pure white flowers that resist ‘bluing’ in cooler temperatures. Prune lightly in early spring, no harder than 4 inches. Lavender MUST have good drainage in order to avoid root rot problems. Consider growing in a raised bed or rock garden. A seed-grown selection introduced by Kieft Seeds of the Netherlands. Winner of a European Fleuroselect Gold Medal (2006).
