These are best planted from early May when we’ll have fresh plants propagated and grown by us as always.
An interesting range of toothed lavenders that thrive outside if given just a little protection to keep them above 0°C. A dry bed at the base of a sheltered south facing wall is often sufficient. We offer lavenders from one species dentata and one hybrid x ginginsii (lanata x dentata).
Try something different! Use the foliage sparingly as a culinary herb and flower tufts as edible decoration on salads and desserts.
dentata (Fringed Lavender)
These derive their name from the toothed (dentate) leaves which have a richly aromatic lavender-rosemary scent. Pale flowers with their little tuft of ‘ears’ appear throughout the summer and beyond if given the right conditions.
x ginginsii (lanata x dentata)
The name derives from Baron Frédéric Charles Jean Gingins de la Sarraz who wrote ‘Natural history of the lavenders’ in 1826, the first of its type. The plant inherits the soft silver foliage of lanata and the dentate foliage of dentata.
