    Noteworthy Characteristics

    ‘Hidcote’ is a compact, mounding, perennial English Lavender typically growing to about 20 inches tall and wide and featuring pretty, deep purple-blue flowers and handsome gray foliage. This variety can be kept dense with regular pruning. A butterfly magnet!

    Growing Information

    Grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained, alkaline soil in full sun. Constantly soggy soil is a killer. Prefers a light, sandy soil with somewhat low fertility. Remove faded flowers to promote continued bloom. Prune to shape in spring after new leaves appear. Prune back to 8” in spring every 3 years to control plant size and to promote robust, new growth. In high-humidity areas consider using rock instead of organic mulch.

    Uses 

    In the garden, Hidcote Blue Lavender works well in perennial borders, butterfly gardens, and is also ideal in sunny container gardens. The foliage and flowers of lavender can be used in perfumes and potpourri, so it is ideal for cutting and herb gardens. Fresh flowers can be crystalized and used in candies and cakes, dried flowers are used in potpourris and satchets, oils are used in creams and perfumes. And these are only some of the more common uses. One of the richest in essential oils.
