Torch

Lavandula multifida

Beautiful Lavandula multifida is a fast-growing tender perennial. It flowers the first year from sowing and can produce a flowering gallon pot in only 15-16 weeks from sowing. It has finely cut silvery-grey fern-like oregano scented foliage and stems growing up to 75-85 cm/30-34 in., topped by attractive 6 cm/2.5 in. flower spikes. This perennial Lavandula is not hardy as most other Lavandula species, USDA zones 7-10. It does very well in the landscape as feature plant or as a thriller component in mixed containers. It flowers all summer to frost. In addition to the violet-blue color, Blue Torch, we introduce a lavender blushing white version called Minty Ice.
