Lavender – Ellagance Purple
Lavandula angustifolia 'Ellagance Purple'

Zone: 5 - 9
Height: 18"

General: Large flower spikes of intense purple-blue. Well-branched, bushy habit. Lavender grows best with moderate moisture, well-drained soil and plenty of bright sunlight. Versatile plant used for cooking, cut flowers, potpourri and more.

Culinary Uses: This lavender can be used in similar culinary respects as its relative 'Ellagance Pink' - in baking and cooking, although sparingly.

Medicinal Uses: Lavender is a natural insecticide as many insects despise fragrance. Planting lavender around plants that are prone to insect infestation may help keep bugs at bay. Dried lavender flowers are traditionally used for filling sachets and for placing among linen. Placing the dried flowers inside drawers or closets will help repel moths and make your clothes smell great.

Ornamental Uses: This variety of lavender is a great alternative to vegetative varieties. It flowers the first year on large dense spikes. The plants are bushy and well branched. Ellagance purple has more flowers and fuller larger plants than that of the lavender lady variety.
