Royal Purple English Lavender is a gorgeous dark purple English lavender with a nice
tidy habit and amazing fragrance. Bred in 1944 at Norfolk Lavender, it is
used mainly for drying. Like Hidcote
Lavender, it retains more of its color than lighter colored English
Lavenders when dried in an arrangement or bundle. Dried buds remain fragrant
for years, even when exposed to the air.
Royal Purple English Lavender gets about two feet tall and has blooms that
are about 10 inches long. It makes a nice hedge for full sun areas. It's
bright violet-blue purple flowers go well with pinks and yellows.
This plant is often available in plug
trays. These trays hold 128 of all the same plant. They are a
great low cost way to fill a lot of space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by
an inch. Check here to see if
