Lavender plants are amazingly versatile, appreciated for their year-round durability as garden plants as well as their culinary and herbal traits. 'Fred Boutin' Hedge Lavender is unique for its larger than average size, and as its common name implies, grows large enough to be used as a fragrant hedge of sorts. Deer-resistant and drought-tolerant once established, this variety of lavender can grow to 3-4 feet tall and wide. Its silver-gray leaves provide a beautiful contrast to the deep purple, fragrant flowers that appear all summer long on tall stalks. Leaves and flowers can be used dried in potpourris and sachets or fresh for culinary purposes.
