As the name implies, ‘Sugar Plum’ is a sweetly scented lavender with a deep plum color.  The bracts are short and burgundy.  ‘Sugar Plum’ grows to 1.0m tall by 0.7m wide.  It flowers from August to April with a short period during the hot summer with small or no flowers.  It likes full sun with an annual feed with Osmocote Slow Release plus a dose of gypsum or dolomite lime.  It should be cut back in mid spring and then again in mid autumn.


‘Sugar Plum’ makes a stunning show when mass planted either by itself or with a mixture of Lavandula ‘Pippa White’ and Lavandula ‘Avonview’.  The flowers can be cut and will keep for a week or two.  It is another New Zealand bred lavender.
