'White' Lavender (Lavendula x intermedia 'Alba') Herb in 9cm Pot

White Lavender is a strongly aromatic shrub which can grow up to 1m tall, and is well-recognised for its beautiful scented flowers and grey-green foliage. The evergreen nature of all lavenders 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.

The flowers of White Lavender are of course white, and are produced on spikes at the top of slender, leafless stems 10–30 cm long. White 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 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. Ideally plants should be replaced every 3-4 years as they will eventually become woody at the base, 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 and even lavender ice-cream.
