Lavandula angustifolia Platinum Blonde is a new variety of Lavender noted for its variegated foliage that looks simply stunning in a sunny border. It features attractive and aromatic foliage backing showy blue flowers that will definitely win the appreciation of your garden visitors.

The Lavender oil is a strong mosquito repellent and is also used in aromatherapy. Platinum Blonde features narrow grey-green leaves edged in yellow that appear very perky on a sunny day.
It blooms small blue flowers on dense spikes held tightly on arching branches, from mid-summer to late summer months. These abundant flowers combined with Platinum Blonde’s handsome foliage create a striking display of colours.
Lavender are sun-loving plants that will be happy planted in any sunny location in a garden. They will also enjoy some partial shade in the afternoon. They will thrive in average to dry humus-rich soil that is well-drained. They develop a deep root system that gives them the ability to look for moisture on their own.
Platinum Blonde Lavender is a hardy perennial although it might need some protection against frost in extremely cold winter. Cut back stalks after the flowering season or in early spring to give it a more compact look.
Lavandula Platinum Blonde is a beautiful sub-shrub that makes a great low hedge and also used as edging along a pathway, sidewalk or near garden entrance. This stunning herbaceous plant stands out in a border. Use it in mass plantings or in mixed containers on a patio.
