Lavender - White

Lavandula angustifolia 'Arctic Snow'

White Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia 'Arctic Snow') has dark green foliage that perfectly compliment the stunning white flowers that appear in the summer. It is an English variety of Lavender that is well suited to our climate (other than wet soils) and hardy in all but the coldest winters. The flowers are of great interest to insects, with bees becoming a regular visitor.

Lavender is very easy to cultivate but the key to its longevity is pruning. Aside from regular deadheading through the growing season to encourage flower production, a harder prune back should be done as soon as the flowers start to fade in August. We recommend removing at least one third of the plant, not just the flower spikes. This allows light to penetrate into the heart of the plant after which small shoots will then grow a further 5cm before the plants start to go dormant in September.

Pruning in this way ensures that your White Lavender plants have a lush, tidy appearance through winter. Once spring comes, the new shoots wil re-commence their growth giving you a dense shrub and healthy production of flowers as the weather warms.

Alternatively, you can leave the spent flower heads on the plants until spring because in winter, when food for birds is scarce, birds will come to feed on the seeds - goldfinches in particular! Plants might eventually become wooded and straggly so it is best to replace a hedge after about 20 years though this is not always necessary.

Lavender and Dormancy

It's important to note that when Lavender goes into dormancy from early autumn until late spring, it will become brown and twiggy .This is perfectly normal and it will become green again in the spring. Read our Hedges Direct Lavender Guide for more advice and information.
