About Lavender Chaytoriae Plants

All Lavandula × chaytoriae varieties (the name honours the renowned Lavender expert, Dorothy Chaytor) are hybrids of Lavandula Angustifolia and Lavandula Lanata (Woolly Lavender), a shrubby native of southern Spain, renowned for its silvery-haired foliage. The resulting varieties, collectively known as the Velvet Lavenders, are hardy to around -10°C and have a glorious scent, attractive soft, silvery foliage and a mass of rich purple flowers.

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. In particular, they contrast beautifully with the greener foliage of Lavandula angustifolia cultivars.

The flowering period is from mid-summer from June to July.
