The Plants

Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote'


Photo of Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote'


A compact evergreen English lavender with aromatic, silver-grey leaves and spikes with fragrant, deep purple-blue flowers in summer. Acts like a magnet to bees and other nectar-loving insects. 'Hidcote' is a compact variety, suitable for growing in borders or as dwarf hedging and is one of the most popular lavenders.
