Lavendula Angustifolias (English Lavender) and Lavendula x.Intermedias (Lavandins) are two lavender species that can be grown in Zone 5.
ROYAL VELVET - A small to medium plant with semi-gray green foliage and dark violet calyces. A striking cultivar introduced by Andrew Van Hevelingen in Newburg, Oregon. Royal Velvet has longer stems and is excellent for dried floral bouquets/crafting.
HIDCOTE BLUE - A medium, short-stemmed bushy plant with dense grey-green foliage. A brilliant dark purple flowered plant for ornamental use - a wonderful, sweet oil producer.
HIDCOTE PINK - A medium bushy plant with grey-green foliage. One of the best pink-flowered cultivars for ornamental purposes - quite striking when planted en masse. The aroma is sweetly fragrant - we process for oil.
TRUE HIDCOTE - An English cultivar supposedly traced back to Hidcote Manor. Small semi-bushy plant, with vibrant purple Corollas.
MAILETTE - A very attractive cultivar with dark violet blooms. This plant is medium sized suitable for ornamental plantings and oil purposes. Great producer, one of our favorites.
MUNSTEAD - A small, tidy bush with dark violet buds and spikes that are medium to long. This fragrant plant is well suited for ornamental use and continues to be a good oil producer. Propagated from cuttings to keep a true strain. Very hardy for Zone 5 weather.
MELISSA - The aroma of this plant is very sweet and fragrant, fantastic for culinary use. The delicate soft-lavender pink flowers are formed on a medium plant with bushy habit. Introduced by Andrew Van Hevelingen in Newburg, Oregon.
SHARON ROBERTS - Introduced by Dr Don Roberts in Independence, Oregon. This medium, bushy plant produces bright violet-blue buds which are very fragrant, on spikes that are medium to long, and suitable for crafting or culinary uses.
FOLGATE - One of the earliest blooming angustifolias. Small to medium habitat with gray-green foliage and soft violet-blue blooms. Suitable for hedging or ornamental plants.
BUENA VISTA - Introduced by Dr Don Roberts, Independence, Oregon. This variety dries well if harvested before the buds open, suitable for crafting and bouquets. A vibrant violet-blueberry bloom. Growth is not as compact as other cultivars.
MISS KATHERINE - A semi-tall plant with gray-green foliage. Spikes are long and lilac-pink in color. Excellent for use in a border or to contrast with a darker purple plant.
VIOLET INTRIGUE - Upright bushy, semi-tall plant with impressive violet-blue color. Suitable for ornamental or mass plantings, beautifully contrasted with a deep blue or purple lavender
GRAVES - This cultivar of English lavender is taller than others. Very productive with nice upright stems - nice for fresh and dried flowers - the color is dark violet.
TRUE GROSSO - This is our "work horse" for oil production. A very large plant with mid-green foliage and plump, dark violet buds. Very fragrant - dries well for ornamental or crafting purposes. Grosso buds are excellent for potpourri. Great all-around plant.
PROVENCE - Beautiful soft violet flowers with light purple highlights, a very prolific bloomer. Use for fresh-cut, wands and potpourri. Flower aroma is both powerful and sweet. This plant lacks much of the camphor overtones of other lavandins and therefore can be used as a culinary lavender. Reminiscent of the South of France where the majority of this variety is grown.
ABRIALII - Bushy and semi-tall, lateral branching is long with elegant, bright violet-blue spikes. Popular as an oil, fragrant or ornamental plant - one of our favorites. Works beautifully for lavender wands.
CATHY BLANC - An extremely large, white lavandin. - beautiful for contrast plantings with other purple lavenders. Similar to Alba, a white flowered lavandin cultivar. Beautiful planted en masse against darker colored lavenders. Growth is compact - we also use this variety in our bouquets.
SUPER - This plant is a French cultivar, extremely heavy oil producer. Very fragrant with very long stems and large flower heads - dark violet in color. Very hardy with a bushy habitat.
Can be successfully grown in pots outside during the summer months in zone 5. Overwinter inside when temperatures start to change. These lavenders should be kept well pruned. Most will bloom in the spring and again in the summer after regular pruning. This will encourage a pleasing shape and abundant flowering.
BALLERINA - Flower spikes have bright purple corollas that change color from white through to purple-pink. The sterile bracts resemble butterflies fluttering in the breeze. A compact plant that is beautiful planted en masse around a statue or water fountain. Very eye catching and fragrant.
SPANISH CURLY TOP - Showy top bracts of bright electric purple that are ruffled, or a bit curly, with a mild scent and sweet aroma. This one will really catch your eye. Plant height approx. 1.5' and about 2.5 feet wide.
MULTIFIDA - An unusual species with finely divided foliage and a strong, earthy aroma. The long straight stems are topped off with blue-purple bracts usually in a cluster of three. Fern Leaf Lavender has green lacy leaves and is highly aromatic, making it attractive to bees. Great for use in borders or containers.
