Edelweiss Lavender - White Lavender

Tough, dense and deliciously pungent, Lavandula intermedia Edelweiss has lovely evergreen foliage, faintly coated in fine grey hairs. In summer, masses of long, delicate stems rise up by half a metre or more, topped by creamy white flowers that waft Lavender's soothing aroma all over your garden. You can use Edelweiss Lavender on its own or with other colours of lavender to create a wild, natural looking display. Lavandula Edelweiss is a great plant for bees and butterflies, who come for the nectar and in so doing pollinate many other plants in the garden on the way.

It is interesting to note that you can use the same flowers, dried and bagged, to keep other insects out of your drawers and cupboards. Edelweiss Lavender is also good for making simple bunches to place around the house, as the flowers tend not to fall apart when they are dry. Lavender oil was thought to be a cure-all in ancient times and some of its old uses have stood up to modern testing: it is antiseptic, speeds up the healing of burns, and we don't need a scientist to tell us that a lavender scented bath is relaxing! If you wish to make your own White Lavender oil, harvest the flowers in the early morning for best results.

Edelweiss is a medium-sized plant that can reach 80cms in height when you include the flower stalks, in about 2 years. It makes a great decorative hedge and is used to good effect with stone landscaping, breaking up the straight lines.

Planting and Caring for Edelweiss Lavender 

Like all Lavenders, Edelweiss Lavender is a sun loving plant that needs a well drained soil; cold is not a problem, but waterlogging in winter will kill it. It is happy by the sea and on chalky soil and once it is settled in, will also thrive on very poor, dry soil. If you want to grow white lavender on clay soils, to really improve the drainage, you have to raise the soil level by a minimum of 15cms, 6 inches, by digging in lots of grit, sand and low nutrient organic matter like bark mulch. Throw in a very small handful of bone meal fertiliser per plant. Newly planted lavender do need a bit of watering; if it doesn't rain drench them once a week rather than watering them frequently.

To get dense, bushy plants that last for ages, clip them hard every year when the flowers have faded. Cut back each stem so that a little green growth remains. Cutting into woody, old growth can be a little risky so do it a little earlier, when the plant is still fully vigorous, as soon as the flowers start to fade. This will give it time to make new shoots before winter. You may trim again them a little in March if they need tidying up.
