A Lavender Field

A Lavender Field

Lavenders are usually planted in large clumps of one variety, where their soft shade and cool, subtle foliage provide quiet dignity through the summer. A delightful effect can be had by combining several Lavender varieties. Their disparate heights, colors, and forms flow together to produce a garden that is interesting and informal, but very definitely Lavender. Of course, there is no "right" way to combine them. Enjoy a vast sweep of fragrant blooms with eight plants each of three hardy varieties: Lavandula angustifolia, L. x intermedia 'Grosso', and L. x i. 'Provence'. Twenty-four plants total. They will cover about 80sq feet. Exclusive.

Many gardeners grow Lavender for its fragrance, but the genus Lavandula 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.
