Lavender 'Hidcote'

A reasonably fast growing, evergreen, lavender with strongly scented grey/green foliage, the long lasting lilac flowers, are dense and appear on long stems. Lovely as a informal edging or small hedging plant. Bees love them. 'Hidcote' is a compact form of lavender with fragrant, deep violet flowers over aromatic, silvery-grey leaves. It is possibly the best lavender for edging paths and borders.
