Ellagance Snow Lavender is a compact form of L. angustifolia, growing to around 40cm x 40cm. This selection produces grey-silver leaves with spikes of pure white flowers in mid summer, a nice contrast to the more common 'lavender' blues and purples.
Flowers bloom in abundance and can continue into the autumn. It has a very well-branched habit with sturdy stems. The excellent fragrance and beautiful colour make it a great choice for borders, along pathways, or near patios. L. angustifolia is native to the European mediterranean basin and favours neutral to alkaline soils in its distribution, however it seems to tolerate acid soils as well. Like most mediterranean species, but particularly lavenders, over watering, particularly in summer, will shorten their life - sometimes suddenly!
We are a plant nursery in the Algarve specialising in dry mediterranean species. We propagate and grow our own stock in conditions they are likely to endure when they are planted out.
We grow plants that are adapted to the dry land conditions in Portugal and southern Spain, both mediterranean perennials and succulents.
We choose plants that require very little water and maintenance. We produce a range of dry land plants that are typical of the worlds mediterranean regions. These are available to order ready for planting in the wetter months of the year. Please order the plants you need and we’ll have them ready at the best time for planting.
To ensure your new plants adapt and establish quickly, we produce them in special anti-spiral root pruning containers and a range of fibre pots (no plastic waste) with our own tried and tested growing media.
Please note we have no retail outlet or garden centre and are not open to the public. For more information you can contact us here.
