Betty's Blue

Lavandula Angustifolia

Stem Length: 8-10 inches

Plant Height:  18-20 inches

Best uses:  bouquets, crafts, culinary


This lavender forms an attractive compact silver mound. The dark blue flower buds grow close together on the stem and have a mild lavender scent. The flowers bloom once beginning in mid June.  The buds dry well, which means they stay on the stem after they are dried and hold their dark blue color.

This cultivar is especially nice to use for making wreaths, bouquets and arrangements, as well as with other lavender crafts and products.  The buds and flowers are lovely to use fresh or dried to garnish and lightly flavor foods and beverages.
