A compact lavender,  named after Hidcote, the beautiful Arts & Crafts garden in Gloucestershire, England. It is one of the most popular, and my personal favorite, lavender. It has dense silver-grey foliage, covered in fragrant, dark violet-blue dense flower spikes in mid-summer. Plant at the front of the border or use as dwarf hedge. Lavender dries well and has a number of uses.

Matures at about 18″ tall and wide.  Plant in full sun and well-drained soil . Cut back the flower stalks after they have finished, but do not cut into old wood as it may not resprout.
