Fred Boutin Lavender
Lavandula x intermedia 'Fred Boutin'
(hardy in zones 5-9)
Excellent for crafting!
Unique for its long sturdy stems and silver-grey leaves. Although aroma is not particularly strong but beautiful lavender-violet flowers are one of the most preferred varieties for crafts. Grows in dense clumps and is excellent for informal hedges in sunny areas. Named after the California botanist who discovered this variety in the 1980s. Like any other variety, Fred Boutin Lavender must be located in full sun and planted in well drained alkaline sandy soil, ideally in a raised bed or rock garden as they are prone to root rot if conditions are too wet. Perfect for borders, rock gardens and containers. After the second year of growth, begin pruning once or twice a year, cutting back a third of its foliage. This will help maintain their shape, leaf and flower production as well as prevent woodyness. Flowers August onwards. Height 140cm.
