Noteworthy Characteristics

'Platinum Blonde' is an award-winning English lavender with amazing creamy-gold edged silver-grey foliage that glows in the garden, hence the name. Dense spikes of fragrant blue flowers rise above the foliage on thin stems during summer.  Plantinum Blonde loves the heat and grows nicely in a mounding compact habit, offering disease resistance.

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, Platinum Blonde English Lavender works well as a specimen or in groupings in 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.
