This Spanish native was bred in 2013 and is now the go-to lavender. The Platinum Blonde displays beautiful blue/purple spikes of flowers that last from summer into fall. The fragrant blooms sit dramatically against variegated gray-green leaves with strokes of creamy yellow. Bees and butterflies will congregate around the lavender, creating a natural show that will be the envy of the neighborhood. No wonder this breed is flower show award winner, including a nomination for Plant of the Year at the 2013 Chelsea Flower Show!
So Easy to Grow!
The Platinum Blonde is royal in looks but simple to maintain. Simply find a spot with well drained soil and water well. Add a good organic granular fertilizer to start the year off right. While you may have to do some pampering in the first year to establish, you will find this lavender can fend mostly for itself. Pests, disease, and deer steer clear. The herb can even handle drought and humidity. Water when dry, but never water overhead to avoid disease. Its semi-evergreen status will give you lush colors even in the grey of winter.
Gorgeous In and Out
Wherever you decide to put the lavender will be a perfect choice. The Platinum Blonde sits well in rock gardens, edges, or even as dramatic hedge backdrop for your other flowers. The lavender even loves containers and can be moved inside in the winter in the more Northern climates.
Its lush scents and stunning flowers are perfect for any cut arrangement. Your vase displays will stand out in every room. Imagine the lavender fragrance filling up your home, providing a natural scent that soothes the soul. You can also dry out the flowers and put them in oils, sachets, and even as a culinary spice!
