Platinum blonde lavender is one of few variegated lavenders that has intense yellow outlines fading to a creamy yellow as the leaves age. The leaf centers are the typical gray/green color. In the summer masses of purple/blue blooms are borne on short stalks for many weeks. The rounded plants grow fast to fill in any well-drained area and provide color for 365 days of the year. The fragrance is very typical of the English varieties. A beautiful addition to the border and a great edging plant. Also of interest to rock gardens and container gardens. A popular plant for attracting pollinators to the garden and is loved by bees, butterflies, and the occasional hummingbird. Drought tolerant once established.
