Quick Overview:

Lavendula 'Essence Purple' is an outstanding garden performer. Standing 18" tall, this compact form of Lavender forms a perfectly rounded mound. The dense green foliage has that familiar Lavender scent. Starting 10 days earlier than most Lavendula varieties, 'Essence Purple' sends up bright blue flower spikes that last for weeks. This long blooming variety is perfect for cut flowers and dried bouquets.


'Essence Purple' is easy to grow, drought resistant, and the deer and rabbit stay away. Lavender has been grown for years for its beautiful aroma and for the pure joy of also enjoying it indoors. Plant 'Essence Purple' in your rock gardens, patios, cottage gardens, or in containers.
