Lavender Hidcote

Lavender Hidcote is one of the most popular dwarf Lavenders in British gardens. Its elegant, slim silver-grey leaves complemented by dense yet delicate dark purple flowers on 3-4cm spikes make it an exceptionally attractive plant. In addition, Hidcote has a strong fragrance and an equally strong constitution. No wonder the RHS has given Hidcote their Award of Garden Merit

Soil and Situation Plant Lavender Hidcote in any well-drained soil in full sun and it will thank you with its glorious annual display. It also grows well in coastal areas.

Maintenance: It needs little or no regular pruning, but a light trim in mid to late spring will keep its shape. Cut off flower spikes in autumn once flowering is over.

Versatility: Lavender Hidcote is an edging plant par excellence, makes a fabulous low hedge and is equally at home in a border or container planted on its own or in a group.

And finally: Lavender Hidcote is named after Hidcote Manor where it was selected and planted by the American Lawrence Johnston after his mother had purchased the estate in 1907 and he took on the task of turning it into a garden. Now looked after by the National Trust, Hidcote Manor is the country’s greatest Arts and Crafts garden, preserving Lawrence Johnston’s creation.
