Lavandula angustifolia 'Blue River'

Common lavender. Decorative evergreen plant with a fairly compact habit. Prefers a sunny, sheltered position on the patio or in a flowerbed. Plants in pots need fertilizer regularly. This lavender is lime-loving  and prefers dry or normal soil. Blue River flowers very profusely and prolonged with beautiful, deep blue spikes. The foliage is a nicely grey-green and wonderfully fragrant when touched. After flowering, the spikes can be used in dry bouquets or homemade potpourri. The flowers attract many butterflies and bees. Destined for decoration, not for consumption.
