Hidcote Lavender

Hidcote is a popular choice in lavender. It smells wonderful, and its bright purple flowers make a lovely contrast with its blue-green evergreen foliage. You can plant Hidcote lavender as a low hedge, as an edging or border, or in a container. Hidcote lavender repels deer and rabbits and attracts pollinators. Hidcote is a recipient of the Award of Garden Merit from the U.K.’s Royal Horticultural Society.
