We have plants available in 1/2 gallon containers for $14 and 2 gallon pots for $24. Not all varieties are available in all sizes and some quantities are limited.
Here's what we've got in stock right now:
Dilly Dilly – (1/2 gal only) Lavandula x intermedia (French). Approx. 20-30 inches. The newest variety at Lavender Pond Farm, Dilly Dilly is a rounded shrub packed with highly fragrant violet-blue flower spikes. A great choice for cut flowers and crafts, it’s a hardy, easy to grow variety, and a favorite of the bees.
Blue Cushion - (1/2 gal. only - very limited supply) Lavandula Angustifolia (English). Approx. 12-16 inches. Blue Cushion forms a perfectly compact, rounded cushion of fragrant lavender. From early to late summer, the plant blooms with a dense mass of deep blue flowers which lighten to pale blue as they mature. The flowers are produced in several flushes, giving the appearance of continual bloom sometimes into early fall depending on the weather. Deadheading helps rebloom.
Hidcote - (1/2 gal only, larger later) Lavandula angustifolia (English). Approx. 18-24 inches. One of the most popular varieties. Dark colored lavender-blue flower spikes in late spring and early fall. Compact and sweetly fragrant. Adds great color to garden beds and walkways.
Munstead - (1/2 gal only, larger later) Lavandula angustifolia (English). Approx. 12-18 inches. Compact, early bloomer starts flowering in late June and continues into early fall. Great as an edger or low garden hedge. Fragrant flowers dry well and are excellent for sachets and potpourris.
Phenomenal – (1/2 gallon only, larger later) Lavandula x. intermedia (French). One of our “go to” varieties, Phenomenal is one of the hardiest and easiest to grow lavenders for our region. Approx. 36 inches with spiky purple flowers and silver foliage. Fragrant and a favorite of our butterflies.
English Varieties – First bloom typically late June, early July. Routine clipping during bloom season will result in additional blooms all summer into early fall.
French Varieties – Typically bloom later than English. Mid-July into early August. Once clipped may send up smaller spikes, but not always. The french varieties typically do not bloom year 1.
