Lavender 'Edelweiss' (Lavandula x intermedia 'Edelweiss') Herb in 1 Litre Pot

Lavender 'Edelweiss' is a strongly aromatic shrub, it is a tall variety growing  60-80cm tall, and is well-recognised for its beautiful scented flowers, and grey-green foliage. The flowers of Lavender 'Edelweiss' are white with a hint of blue, produced on spikes at the top of slender, leafless stems 30-40 cm long.

 Lavandula x intermedia are tall and tough lavender's hardy to -15°C,they can cope with a pretty bad English winter, however they will not tolerate damp conditions. They all have broader leaves and longer flower stalks than the angustifolia species, making them particularly suited to using as a cut flower. They 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.

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 .This is the most popular species grown commercially for oil extraction. Use this variety sparingly as a culinary herb, it’s best to use it in cooked food as it has a more lively flavour than the Angustifolia varieties.
