Lavender 'Papillion' Herb Plant  (Lavandula pedunculata subsp. pedunculata) Herb in 9cm Pot

Lavender 'Papillion' is also more commonly known as French Lavender or Butterfly Lavender is a strongly aromatic shrub with narrow grey-green leaves. It is a bushy evergreen shrub which can grow to between 50-100cm tall, and is well-recognised for its beautiful scented small violet flowers on long-stalks, with dense ovoid heads tipped with large purple bracts which give it its common name of butterfly Lavender. 

Lavender 'Papillion' work best as a specimen in a borders or a pot or as an informal flowering hedge. The evergreen nature of the silvery leaves make it an ideal hedging and garden plant as it will give structure to a garden throughout the year .  The flowers are also particularly attractive to bees, butterflies and other wildlife.

Lavender is a flowering plant in the family Lamiaceae, native to the Mediterranean region and as such prefers a light free-draining soil and an open sunny sheltered position. Lavender enjoys being cut back hard (to 2 cm above the hardwood) after flowering in mid Sept and to maintain a neat shape they can be trimmed again in Spring after the first flush of new growth. Ideally plants should be replaced every 3-4 years as they will eventually become woody at the base especially if not regularly pruned, however,  with the correct regular pruning they can last much longer.  

Herb Usage

The flowers of all Lavenders have long been harvested for their essential oil, as well as its insect repellent properties, infusions can ease headaches and encourage restfulness. Dried Flower heads can be used in Lavender pillows to freshen clothes and repel insects in drawers.  Dried Flowers can also be used in cooking such as lavender biscuits .
