Loved for its scent and by pollinators far and wide, lavender is a long-time favorite of gardeners. Big Time Blue Lavender is a special cultivar, as it produces extra-long flower spikes in deep dark blue that tower above its green-gray foliage. Blooming from late spring until early fall, it remains fairly compact at two feet high by two feet wide. With a strong root system and vigorous growth, it is a great perennial for adding impact to your garden or patio.

Big Time Blue Lavender develops a pleasing rounded habit and is ideal for planting individually in containers or for mass planting in borders. Being drought tolerant it is easy to care for and is low maintenance. Often grown for its calming scent and medicinal oils, this lavender is perfect for sourcing cut flowers or making fragrant sachets. As a perennial plant, it will die back in winter, ready to bloom again the following year.

Big Time Blue Lavender Care

To get the best blooms, this Big Time Blue Lavender is best grown in full sun. As with all lavenders, this cultivar needs to be grown in a free-draining soil that is neutral to alkaline. Regular watering is required after planting, but once established, it needs little attention. Beware of growing this plant in overly wet or waterlogged soils though: if there is one thing lavenders don’t like, it is a soggy root system.

The scented flowers can be harvested in summer or deadheaded to encourage more flowers. In spring, the plant can be tidied up by removing roughly one-third of the green growth. Do not cut back into old wood as it may not regrow. In colder areas, container plants can be moved under cover to overwinter, those grown in the ground can benefit from an added layer of mulch to help insulate the roots from cold temperatures.

Big Time Blue Lavender Spacing

If growing Big Time Blue Lavender individually in a planter, a minimum planter size of 16 inches wide is recommended to accommodate its mature size. If planting en masse or to form an informal hedge, lavender plants should be spaced around 18 to 20 inches apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
