A Lovely Fragrant Path

Lavender Hedges, Lavender Paths


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.
