Lavender is one of the most popular small garden shrubs. Plants have narrow, oily and aromatic evergreen leaves and bear dense spikes of small tubular flowers in summer. Lavandula angustifolia is commonly known as English lavender. Most varieties yield purple flowers, but some cultivars come in white or pink. Nearly all cultivars and hybrids are extremely attractive to bees, butterflies and hoverflies. They make an excellent cut flower – both in fresh and dried arrangements.

Lavandula angustifolia ‘Silver Mist’ has silvery green foliage, which contrasts beautifully with purple flower spikes. A medium-sized shrub, it’s ideal for growing towards the front of a mixed herbaceous border, in a more formal setting such as a rose garden, or in a row to edge paths.

For best results, grow ‘Silver Mist’ in well-drained soil in full sun. Cut back the flower stalks after they have finished, and then trim back plants in April, if necessary.
