First time visitor to French Provence will be astonished seeing the endless fields glowing with deep purple colour. Lavenders are grown there like corn or potatoes here. The magnificent view is often linked with a question 'can we do something similar at home, too? ', and the answer is positive: YES! Lavenders are hardy and low maintenance plants that will thrive in any well-drained soil in full sun.

Spear Blue is a lovely lavender introduction by Kieft Seed from 2018. It is a compact variety with extended flowering period. It produces long, fat spikes of deep violet, fragrant flowers opening from purple blue buds. First flowers appear in June and more and more are produced in several flushes throughout the summer until late September, and if the autumn is sunny and warm you can still admire flowering plants in early October. Leaves are evergreen, linear, light green with silver overlay, and very aromatic. Spearl Blue lavender makes dense, strictly upright bushes.

We recommend cutting the plant every spring leaving about a third or maximum half its size to maintain a dense and profusely flowering shrub. You can remove the stalks with spent flowers after flowering to make the clump look neat again, or even sooner if you wish to dry the flowers (hung upside down in an airy room). It will grow in most types of soil provided it is well-drained and not water-logged. The only thing it needs is a sunny location. Fully hardy to min. -25°C (USDA 6).
