If you have a taste for the dramatic, rest assured. You are not alone!

Today's growers know that people crave plants with bold color, intense fragrance, very long bloom times and a fresh take on ancient favorites.

That's one of the reasons why we're so excited to offer Silver Mist English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia 'Silver Mist'). The foliage is incredibly silvery-gray, so much that it almost reads as white from across the yard.

You'll be thrilled with the way the perfectly contrasting lavender purple flower spires perfume the entire area. You'll get your fill of Lavender in a big way with Silver Mist English Lavender.

Lavender has been grown for centuries, but the great form and color of Silver Mist boosts the impact. It develops early on to form a bushy, well-branched, uniform clump in your sunny garden.

The blooms start in midsummer and continue in flushes through early fall. Deer and rabbits don't prefer the taste. However, honeybees and butterflies certainly appreciate the nectar.

This variety grows into an attractive, tidy mound. Use multiple plants to decorate the edges of your garden borders, or let them develop into a mass planting to cover ground in a very special way.

Lavender is a drought tolerant plant with fragrant flowers and foliage. They'll take full sun and high heat like champs.

It can be used in both formal and informal garden styles. Use them in a special outdoor container on your patio, deck or balcony.

Don't miss this special variety. It seems to get better, with more and more flowers every year!

How to Use Silver Mist English Lavender in the Landscape

Make room in your landscape for the most fragrant plant to use as cut flowers and dried in potpourri. The dried flowers are widely used to create special gifts for loved ones.

Silver Mist is excellent for sunny borders and Herb Gardens. They work as a beautiful summer-blooming partner to Roses, Hydrangeas, and prairie-style flowering plants like Coneflower and Coreopsis.

If you have an Edible Landscape, you can even use it as a low hedge around your vegetable garden. Plenty of bees, butterflies, and other pollinators will show up for the summer spectacular.

Add to large containers on either side of your front door. Or line your front walk with these magnificent plants for a memorable welcome that your guests will love.

This robust plant offers an excellent full form. Harvest the fragrant foliage and flowers to create special soaps, lotions, hair masks and sachets.

It's perfect for lavender spritzers or lavender lemonade. Float a few blossoms with a lemon slice in purified water. Add to infuse honey with an aromatic zest to rejuvenate your plant, and refresh your spirit.

We can't think of a better mass planting in a dry, sunny spot than Silver Mist. Grow them in full, wide rows. Plant 12 inches apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

Mulch between the plants with a layer of finely shredded wood chips, or use landscape gravel. Keep new mass plantings weeded.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Lavender is a staple item of every sunny Herb Garden. They need at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Ensure they have plenty of good air circulation.

But don't give it a prime spot in rich soil! Durable Lavender needs sharply-drained, rocky or even poor soil to do it's best.

You also won't want to plant this variety too deeply if you have clay soil. Plant them high with a bit of the roots showing above the soil, or use a container or raised bed to improve your drainage.

Prune after flowering is done, if needed for shaping. In early spring, you can prune back the evergreen foliage.

Rejuvenate a few of the oldest, woodiest stems back to the base and remove. You'll see a fresh spray of new foliage growing from the base.

Silver Mist is a modern, disease resistant Lavender when grown in full sun and well-drained soil. Water it regularly during the first season. Once it's established in your soil, you won't need to apply supplemental water.

Get your hands on these fragrant flowers and beautiful foliage. Order your Silver Mist English Lavender today!
