Plant of the Week: Hidcote
'Hidcote' Lavandula angustifolia Zone 5-9
This variety of lavender is one of our favorites. Tall, deep purple spikes with gray-green foliage for a backdrop. A moderate grower that can reach 3 ft tall and wide. Plant in full sun and water regularly for best growth. Great for ledges and mass plantings. Evergreen. Dead head once blooms are spent.
