Lavender 'Richard Gray' (Lavandula x chaytoriae 'Richard Gray') Herb in 1 Litre Pot

Lavandula x chaytoriae Richard Gray is a strongly aromatic shrub growing  60cm tall,  and is well-recognised for its beautiful scented flowers and grey foliage. The flowers of Lavender Richard Gray are lavender blue, produced on shorter spikes at the top of slender, leafless stems 10–30 cm long.  Lavender 'Richard Gray' is a fairly compact mound forming lavender, it works well when grown at the front of borders, in pots or as an informal flowering hedge, the evergreen nature of the leaves make it an ideal hedging and garden plant as it will give structure to a garden throughout the year. The flowers are also attractive to bees. 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. this is a relatively hardy Lavender. 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.
