Lavandula angustifolia 'Princess Blue' is a compact, aromatic, evergreen shrub with grey-green leaves and small, tubular, fragrant, soft blue to violet-blue flowers at the top of slender, leafless stems. Princess Blue Lavender thrives in neutral to alkaline, dry to medium moist, poor, light, sandy, well-drained soils. It prefers full sun, and doesn’t like waterlogged soils, therefore, excellent drainage is essential. Perfect for dry climates. It benefits from hard-pruning. In colder climates, it should be grown in containers and brought inside during the winter. Lavandula angustifolia 'Princess Blue' is a lovely, fragrant shrub perfect for banks and slopes, informal low hedges and screens, garden edging and for growing in pots and containers. It is stunning when planted in masses. It is great for coastal, cottage, urban, or gravel and rock gardens. Lavender is also used for essential oils, as an insect repellent, in dried flower arrangements, and in cooking.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
