Lavender angustifolia (English lavender) is one of the richest in essential oils, meaning more fragrance power both fresh and dried. And the beloved Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue' cultivar has a more erect, compact habit and darker flowers than many others, making it ideal for hedges.

The fresh flowers can be crystalized and used in candies and cakes; dried flowers are used in potpourris and sachets; oils are used in creams and perfumes. But most important, Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue' is a fine garden performer, prepared to flower over a long season in well-drained, slightly dry soil receiving full sun.

An evergreen perennial, Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue' has a subtle blue-green color and a sweet fragrance. Reaching 12- to 18-inches-high and wide, it boasts 2½-inch, linear, downy leaves on strong stems. The leaves open white then turn a pale gray-blue-green color. In summer they are topped by dark purple blooms that attract butterflies and bees.

Grow Lavandula 'Hidcote Blue' in a well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil in an open, sunny spot. Trim back in spring to encourage bushier growth; also deadhead after flowering.
