HR1196A - Blue Spear
Lavandula angustifolia. This brand new cultivar of English lavender is hardy to Zone 6, but blooms in the first year, so can be grown as an annual in cooler climes. It is the tallest and showiest of the first-year-blooming types, with decidedly blue tinted flower spikes over subdued grey-green foliage. With a height of 28-33cm (11-13"), Blue Spear lavender works well in containers, and potted seedlings have definite potential on the market table. From late spring to the end of summer, its spires of fragrant flowers attract all manner of pollinators. The plants have a mounded form, but are very upright, so they can be planted closer together in the row. Each plant has a width of about 28cm (11").

How To Grow
The English lavender varieties we offer are variants of the species L. angustifolia. Lavandula stoechas is commonly known as Spanish lavender, and L. dentata is often referred to as French lavender. These nationality-based categories are more confusing than helpful. It’s best to know the specific variety you are looking for and track it down that way. We love all of the varieties. Comforting, beautiful to look at. Plant some of each variety for fresh lavender all season long. Follow this handy How to Grow Lavender from seeds guide.
