Adorned with lavender in full bloom on either side, this path leads to a lovely focal point, an angel statue, which brings interest and a tempting destination. Isn’t this path a real invitation for a leisurely stroll through it? This fragrant and eye-catching path can be admired at the eastern end of the Rose Garden of Polesden Lacey (www.nationaltrust.org.uk), a wonderful Edwardian estate, surrounded by breathtaking views of the Surrey Hills, a few miles away from Dorking.

Lavender is one of the most favored perennials. The soft colors of its blossoms and gray-green foliage, the sweet fragrance delightfully exuded, its long-lasting flowering season – from late spring to fall (depending on species and geographic areas), its low watering needs and maintenance requirements are irresistible assets!

Lavender ‘Hidcote’, a true English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), is featured in this vignette. Highly aromatic in both foliage and flowers, ‘Hidcote’ is prized for its long-lasting and delightful scent as well as the fashion in which its dark lavender flowers beautifully contrast with its blue-green evergreen foliage. A more erect and compact than other cultivars, this is an ideal candidate for low hedges.
