One of the largest lavenders, 'Seal' grows up to 3' tall and wide and showcases fan-like sweeps of long flower stems. Named for the Seal Herb Farm in England where it originated. Ideal for hedging.
Many gardeners grow Lavender for its fragrance, but the genus includes several excellent garden plants that should be more widely used for their midsummer beauty and resistance to deer, heat, and drought. The cool, gray-green foliage provides a perfect backdrop for the slender, arching flower stems. Some varieties are small, others tall, but they all prefer well-drained, sweet soil and full sun. Plant them in masses or as small hedges, and you'll find that they are attractive and useful long after the spent flowers have been clipped off.
