Fred Boutin Lavender
Lavandula x intermedia 'Fred Boutin'
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal/Aromatic/Industrial Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 5-9)
Excellent for crafting! Unique for its long sturdy stems and silver-grey leaves. One of the most preferred varieties for crafts! Produces highly fragrant deep lavender-blue flowers that bloom from mid-late summer. Grows in dense clumps and is excellent for informal hedges in sunny areas. Named after the California botanist who discovered this variety in the 1980s. Like any other variety, Fred Boutin Lavender must be located in full sun and planted in well drained alkaline sandy soil, ideally in a raised bed or rock garden as it is prone to root rot if conditions are too wet. Perfect for borders, rock gardens and containers. After the second year of growth, begin pruning once or twice a year, cutting back a third of its foliage. This will help maintain their shape, leaf and flower production as well as prevent woodyness.
