Gardeners Gladly Singing the Blues with the Arrival of Big Time Blue Lavender from Concept Plants
The perennial garden just got better with the introduction of Big Time Blue Lavender. This plant’s not just for flower gardens, though. A versatile garden performer, Big Time Blue is an anchor for herb and vegetable gardens, a stand out thriller for containers, and a workhorse landscape plant for waterwise designs.
What’s Not to Love?
Peter van Rijssen of Concept Plants® only brings a plant to market if it’s bigger, better, and bolder than existing selections. Big Time Blue meets the criteria.

Big Time Blue will be the featured plant at the Concept Plants® booth, number 3231. Stop by to give it a look and a sniff and see for yourself why it’s fast becoming a favorite of gardeners, garden centers, and growers alike.
On Trend: Food & Foliage
Two hot trends in horticulture include putting Foliage First (there’s a great new book by that name authored by Christina Salwitz and Karen Chapman) and foodscaping—integrating edibles into the landscape (a cool book about that topic, The Foodscape Revolution by Brie Arthur, hit the shelves this spring as well). Capitalize on both trends with Big Time Blue. Its silver foliage draws your eye even when the plant is not in bloom, and the flowers have quickly become a favorite for the culinary inclined. Lavender lemonade, lavender tea cookies, and lavender blueberry scones are just a few recipes that foodies have created just to show off the flavor and aroma of the flowers. Big Time Blue can be merchandised with perennials, herbs and edibles, container combos, and with drought-tolerant landscape plants.
