White Lavender 'Arctic Snow' Hedge Plants Description
This pure white flowering Lavender makes a gorgeous contrast against the darker backgrounds of other lavender varieties as well as it's own grey/green leaves. It is an English variety of Lavender that is well suited to our climate (other than wet soils) and hardy in all but the coldest winters. It is an evergreen with a compact mound of grey/green foliage. Trim after flowering in late August to keep the plant dense and bushy once established.
White Lavender is a popular variety of Lavender hedging, but we do also have the following additional varieties - English Lavender, Lavender 'Hidcote', French Lavender, and Dwarf Lavender. See our total selection of flowering hedging and fragrant hedge plants.
These plants are available all year round. Plants bought in Autumn, Winter or Spring will flower in the first summer.
We are happy to do a discounted pallet deal of mixed Lavenders - please phone to specify how you'd like them to be mixed.
Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication small pots can be planted anything from 2 to 6 plants per metre (when planted in a double staggered row),whereas larger pots will require plants per metre.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
Lavender is very easy to cultivate but the key to its longevity is pruning. This should be done as soon as the flowers start to fade in August. They can handle a hard pruning and we recommend removing one third of the plant, not just the flower spikes. This allows light to penetrate into the heart of the plant after which small shoots will then grow a further 5cm before the plants start to go dormant in September This ensures that the plants have a lush, tidy appearance through Winter. Once spring comes, the new shoots wil re-commence their growth giving you a dense shrub and healthy production of flowers as the weather warms.
Alternatively, you can leave the spent flower heads on the plants until spring because in winter, when food for birds is scarce, birds will come to feed on the seeds - goldfinches in particular! Plants might eventually become wooded and straggly so it is best to replace a hedge after about 20 years though this is not always necessary.
