Lavandula viridis Yellow Lavender

French and Yellow Lavender in Bloom

The rabbit-ear like chiffon yellow blooms of the rare Yellow Lavender, Lavandula viridis, present themselves at the same time as other early lavenders like the French Lavender in the picture to the left. The gray leaves and purple flowers of French Lavender make a striking contrast to the yellow green leaves and flowers of Yellow Lavender.

Yellow Lavender plants naturalized in the field.

This Yellow Lavender has naturalized and gets very little care or water. Not really something we recommend. To keep the bush looking good it should be watered when needed to keep branches from dying out. And, it should be pruned by at least a third after it blooms in early summer. This will help to maintain a neater appearance.

If you feel Lavender should be purple and smell like soap, then this plant is not for you. Big and bold describes the color, shape and fragrance of Yellow Lavender.

Yellow Lavender makes a great addition to our Zone 8 Fragrant Herb Garden Six Pack.
