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.  




 

 

Big Time Blue:  Like Super Blue and Hidcote this is a lavender that produces dark buds and flowers. Considered to have the largest flowers and earliest bloom of any English lavender.  This is a variety we are introducing in 2017 at Weir's Lane. At maturity the height is 12-16" with a spread of 12-18 inches.  This is also a plant that might work well in a container.

Intermedia (French) Varieties: 

Intermedias are less hardy in Ontario -- the exception being the variety called Phenomenal. Typically (depends on mother nature!) you will start to see buds by late June to early July and the flowers bloom from mid July well into August.  The French lavenders are great for sachets and potpourris given their stronger scent.  They also work well as cut and dried flowers.  Only a few varieties work well in cooking.

Phenomenal: This is a variety for which the plants may only be purchased from farms that have received a license to sell the plants (they are under patent protection).  Unlike many French varieties they have been exhibiting better over-wintering in our Ontario climate.  There are many wonderful properties of Phenomenal lavender plants.  We're sure you'll be happy with this selection.  The plants in our field have been doing quite well.  The height of this plant at maturity is approximately 24-32 inches with a spread of 24-32 inches.

Edelweiss: As the name suggests this is a lavender that produces white flowers.  We planted them in our field three years ago and they have been doing quite well. At maturity the height is 18 inches with a spread of 24 inches.  As this is a softer French variety it could be used in cooking.
