Details

Lavendula augustifolia 'Hidcote' is an English Lavender variety with many uses. It has been a mainstay of herb gardens for many years. This �true lavender� is commercially planted for harvesting its oils for use in perfumes. English lavender varieties are more often used for culinary purposes than other types of lavender. Lavender flowers and foliage are also popular additions to sachets and potpourris. Despite its common name, it is not in fact native to England, but comes primarily from the Mediterranean region. It was reportedly named English lavender because of its ability to grow well in the English climate. Well-drained soils are required, particularly in winter. Root rot commonly attacks plants grown in poorly drained soils.
