Our 2017 varieties:
Angustifolia (English) Varieties.
Angustifolias are the hardiest in Ontario. Typically (depends on mother nature!) you will start to see buds by mid-June (sometimes earlier) and the flowers bloom from late June well into July. We like the English lavenders best for cut/dried flowers, cooking (most varieties) and they can also be used in potpourri and sachets but they will have a lighter scent than the French lavenders (Hidcote being a bit of an exception).
Munstead: The flowers are lavender (light purple) in colour. This variety can be used in cooking. At maturity the height is 12 inches and the spread is between 12 and 18 inches.
Hidcote Blue: The flowers are a deeper purple in colour. We do not recommend using this variety in cooking. At maturity the height is 12-18 inches and the spread is 18 inches.
Platinum Blonde: This is a very new variety that is still be tested for hardiness and is under patent. It is an Angustifolia variety that was developed in Spain. The leaves are varigated (cream and green) with stunning blue flowers. It is a compact lavender that should work well in in containers. The height of this plant at maturity is approximately 16-24 inches with a spread of approximately 18 inches.
Super Blue: Like Hidcote this is lavender that produces dark buds and flowers but in a compact plant. At maturity the height is 10-12" with a spread of 10-12 inches. This is also a plant that might work well in a container.
