Search For Your Ideal Lavender Plant


Find Your Lavender Plant with Hedge Xpress

Lavender has many different types and this can be confusing when purchasing a lavender. Here at Hedge Xpress we have explained the differences to allow you to make a better decision. Lavender plants are fragrant, evergreen and iconic – and ideal for Mediterranean or European style parterres; edging for borders or islands or as specimen plants in pots, tubs or raised beds. Many different varieties are available, but some of the best known are prone to rotting and may therefore succumb to a wet winter. Which is why we grow hardier alternatives that are no less attractive but much better equipped to survive the vagaries of our climate. Our lavenders have green to silvery-grey aromatic foliage and produce masses of beautifully scented flowers in colours from light to deep blue; from purple to pink through to a pure, delicate white.

These slow-growing varieties are fragrant, decorative, hardy, easy to maintain and highly drought resistant. And all three need just full sun and any well-draining soil to give of their best.

Lavender Angustifolia (English)

Lavender Angustifolia (English)

Both its delicate foliage (angustifolia means narrow leaf) and bright, abundant flowers are strongly aromatic and their pinkish-purple colouring most closely matches what we know as ‘lavender’.

Lavender Chaytoriae

As easy to maintain as any other Lavender, they are an excellent addition to any garden, in the ground or containers, whether you plant them on their own or alongside other varieties.

Lavender Intermedia (Dutch)

Lavender Intermedia (Dutch)

Lavandula x intermedia varieties are particularly popular with Lavender lovers as they are late flowering and so extend the Lavender season into autumn.
