Lavender Margaret Roberts

Lavender Margaret Roberts – A really tough lavender! Evergreen and bushy with narrow grey leaves, it produces its tightly packed, dark blue flowers throughout the summer.

An upright, fast growing lavender. The blooms appear throughout the year, in clusters atop fine stems. Lavenders do best in a well drained soil, in a sunny part of the garden. The long-stemmed flowers are excellent for cutting. They are also favored for linen sachets and potpourris. If preparing the blooms for drying, cut them while fresh and hang them upside down to dry. In the garden, lavender can be planted in rows as a low hedge or in sunny dry spots where its fragrance and summer color can be appreciated. It is perfect for the Mediterranean inspired garden and looks pretty planted among ornamental grasses in wild gardens.

The variety “Margaret Roberts” is registered in South Africa. It flowers nearly all year round and is fully hardy. An upright, fast growing lavender. The blooms appear throughout the year, in clusters on fine stems.
Large, billowing bushes and long-stemmed flower spikes create a wonderful airy, fine-textured effect.
