It sometimes feels as though you need a scorecard when comparing the attributes of all the different lavenders available to home gardeners. Bloom color, maximum size, and hardiness can all vary, but most lavenders have that signature gray-green foliage. Enter 'Platinum Blonde' lavender, sporting gray-green foliage edged with a creamy yellow. Just as fragrant as other lavenders with light blue blooms, this variety adds another dimension in color and texture. A wonderful addition to container planters and hanging baskets, 'Platinum Blonde' is a bit smaller than some of its cousins and pairs well with red and blue companion plants.
