This plant isn't hardy for me, but it is so beautiful I decided to try growing it in a container. I kept it in my garage last winter (where the temperature stays above freezing) and watered it occasionally. It has new growth now, so it appears to have survived this treatment.

L. lanata x angustifolia is now called L. x chaytorae. It has the beautifull grey nearly white foliage of L. lanata. L. lanata is 'nt hardy enough for my zone 8b. The cross with L. angustifolia can better endure our winters if planted well drained in a open space. They need good pruning in spring ...eyes closed and just cut....Late summer a light pruning to keep it in shape. Very elegant shrub. It has the darkest purple blue flowers of all Lavandula.

A beautiful plant with bushy purple flowers.
Also known as 'Sawyers Hybrid' and 'Connard Blue'
Raised by Suffolk herbs, UK in the late 1980s
A very useful lavender for producing a fine display when planted 'en masse', though makes a good feature plant too.
