Lavender, ‘MELISSA LILAC’ – Lavandula angustifolia

Lavender, ‘MELISSA LILAC’ – Lavandula angustifolia is a wonderful variety with sturdy aromatic grey green foliage and dense spikes of Lilac flowers in summer.

Melissa Lilac makes an excellent hedge or border specimen in the garden. It is ideal for a neat border edging plant.

The flowers are also very attractive to bees and pollinators. 

As with all lavenders it prefers well drained soil in full sun. Relatively easy to grow, simply cut back the flower stalks after they have finished, and then trim back plants again in April, if necessary.

Throughout history lavender has been grown for its medicinal properties. The essential oil is still in huge demand worldwide.

Lavender is also a culinary herb. Use in many recipes such as desserts, baking, cool drinks and cocktails. Try a delicious lavender lemonade in summer months!
