Lavandula angustifolia 'Platinum Blonde'

Details

The cream-striped foliage of Platinum Blonde sets it apart from other English lavenders. Offering delicious fragrance and compact growth, it's perfect for containers and borders.

It's richly aromatic and and the fragrance is so enticing, fruit growers often use this variety to attract pollinating bees to their fruit trees. For continual blooming be sure to trim back after first flush of blooms. Lavender is lovely for indoor arrangements: try it fresh or dried in home-made sachets & herb baskets. Lavenders were used by ancient Greeks and Romans in their famous baths, and the name derives from "lavare," the Latin word for "wash." Drought-tolerant, easily grown and maintained, this plant deserves the adoration it receives worldwide.
