Lavender Hidcote Description

Lavender Hidcote is one of our very best-selling sun perennials! It makes the perfect low-growing hedge!

This drought-tolerant & hardy perennial has extremely fragrant foliage & flowers that are enjoyable in the garden, or cut-fresh & added to flower arrangements!

Lavender Hidcote can also be cut & dried for use in potpourri & other dried flower arrangements. Because it is an English lavender, its fragrance is sweeter than that of the other variants that we carry -- Phenomenal, and Grosso , which are Lavandin, or a cross between augustifolia, (English Lavender), and latifolia (the true French Lavender). The Lavandin tend have a more medicinal odor because of higher camphor content. Hidcote's sweet blooms are great for sachets!

This easy-to-grow sun perennial thrives in full sun & normal garden soil. Plants vigorously grow to form mounds of fragrant, silvery foliage 15" tall & 24" wide.

Fragrant, long-blooming Lavender Hidcote makes the perfect companion to long-blooming KnockOut Roses & late-flowering Sedums!

Ideas and How-to's

SUGGESTED PRODUCTS

PLANTING GUIDE

Soil: Grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained, alkaline soil (pH should be 6.5 or higher). Prefers a light, sandy soil with somewhat low fertility.
Light: Full sun
Water: Dry to medium -- Root rot commonly attacks plants grown in poorly drained soils. High summer humidity in southern growing zones is not appreciated. To combat high humidity, consider using rock instead of organic mulch.
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches
Fertilizing: Feed with a light application of general purpose, or time release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
Winterizing: Plants may not survive in winter if soils are not well-drained and/or if temperatures dip below zero degrees without protective snow cover. Prefers southwestern exposure and protection from winter wind.
Maintenance & Pruning: Remove faded flowers to promote continued bloom. Prune once or twice a year to keep plant shapely. Prune option #1: in the spring after the lavender wakes up. Wait until the lavender has signs of new growth (do not worry if it takes a while to wake up). Prune option #2: in the fall around early October. The rule of thumb in pruning is 1/3 of the plant or about 2 inches above the wood. If you prune into the wood you run the risk of the plant not coming back.

My order just arrived yesterday, and I just had to write and thank you. No only was the delivery prompt and very well packed, but the vivaciousness of the plants themselvers made opening each mox a pleasant surprise. Everything was fresh enough to practically walk out of the box on their own, and the soil and root balls were still quite moist, which seems to have all but eliminated any shipping trauma. I'm already looking forward to my next order...as soon as my spouse lets me have the credit card back. :))
