  • The showiest English Lavender you can grow and sell! Blue Spear shows off bigger, taller spikes than any other seed lavender, with more upright flower stems that stand closer to each other for huge impact from a distance.
  • Very easy to grow, with high uniformity, good habit and earliness (if grown with minimum 12-hour daylength).
  • Bred for maximum show, Blue Spear is best used as a perennial in USDA Hardiness Zones 6a to 8b.
