Lavender Alba is an old, popular and well-tested cultivar of Lavandula Angustifolia – commonly known as the English Lavender. It is a robust, evergreen shrub that will tolerate frost, drought and even a seaside location. In flower, it will reach a metre or more.
Its flowers are tall, pure white, pointed and appear from July right through to September. They are held erect above relatively open and equally vigorous grey-green foliage.
This is a strong growing lavender and requires more space than other Angustifolia types. It naturally grows (with just a little attention) into ground-hugging domes and is therefore excellent for ground cover as well as for low borders, hedging and edging. It is equally at home in tubs or as a specimen plant in a border or raised bed.
