Lavendula angustifolia 'Big Time Blue'

 

 

  • Butterflies love it
  • No herb garden is complete without it
  • Heavenly scent
  • Profuse, large blooms

Details

We were truly impressed by how vigorous and attractive Lavender 'Big Time Blue' was in our trial gardens for the last 2 years. With long stiff stems and a profusion big blue flowers, this one reminds us of the pictures you see of the lavender fields in Provence France! Attracts butterflies. Dried flowers and leaves of Lavender are prized for potpourri, scented oils and crafts. Has proven hardy so far. Well drained soil is essential to surviving winter.

Growing Tips

Lavenders are notoriously tough to overwinter in our area. Good drainage is essential. Only a handful of varieties have a chance at surviving around here, this is one of them.
