Dwarf Lavender Hedge Plants Description
Dwarf Lavender is a compact yet impressively fragrant, low-growing lavender, perfect for garden borders, pathways or rockeries. With piercing purple-blue hued flowers, this hardy, semi-evergreen Lavender variety pairs well with other larger Lavender varieties, such as English Lavender, Lavender 'Hidcote', White Lavender, or French Lavender.
Additionally we now stock a series of specially selected Lavender Collections within our Garden plants range featuring several English and French Lavender varieties plus a special mixed variety pack.
Why not mix your Dwarf Lavender plants with other flowering shrubs and scented hedging for a fragrant and visually stunning hedging?
Dwarf Lavender is low-growing and best suited to a height of less than 50cm. Dwarf Lavender plants have an average growth rate and can be expected to achieve 20-40cm per year. Lavandula angustifolia 'Little Lady' prefers a sunny, sheltered site and grows best in normal, well-drained soils, but take care not to over-water.
Dwarf Lavender is available to purchase year round as pot grown plants.
We are happy to do a discounted pallet deal of mixed Lavenders - please phone to specify how you'd like them to be mixed.
Is Dwarf Lavender Evergreen?
All lavender varieties are technically classed as evergreen, as in warmer climates they retain their grey-green foliage year round. However, the cooler UK climate means Lavender plants go into dormancy from early autumn until late spring. During dormancy the foliage turns brown and twiggy, appearing to die back. This is perfectly normal and as the weather warms in late spring, your Lavender plant will once again become green with new shoots.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
As a general rule,smaller pots such as 2L pots can be planted anything from 2 up to 6 plants per metre (if planting in a double staggered row). Planting density is dependent upon the fullness of hedge you require and how long you you are happy to wait to achieve this.
Lavandula angustifolia 'Little Lady' requires a light prune after flowering. Unlike other lavenders, this dwarf variety is a little more delicate and being smaller growing requires a less aggressive pruning. However, it as advisable to still prune at the end of August prior to the plant becoming dormant to encourage new growth and flower production for the year after.
Prune back the flowers and also some of the stem to allow the light to reach further into the plant. Small stems will then start to grow before dormancy providing a good growth basis for the following year.
