Details

Dense spikes of fragrant, rose-pink flowers, in contrast with grey-green foliage. Grow as an informal hedge or at the front of a sunny border alongside roses and other shrubs. It also works well in containers and is very attractive to bees and butterflies.

Also called True Lavender or Common Lavender, the English Lavender is often associated with the famous purple lavender fields in Provence. Despite its common name, it is not native to England but the Mediterranean which accounts for 40 different cultivars including the pink one.
