First spotted by Kiwis Elsie and Brian Hall as a markedly unique seedling in a bed of Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote', 'Thumbelina Leigh' is distinctive for its compact spherical habit and short sturdy well-branched flower wands, offering a vibrant highly aromatic profusion of dense two-toned blooms. The sweet smelling rounded blossoms feature deep purple pubescent calyxes plus large corollas, colored both a bright violet-blue and dark lavender-violet. A stellar addition to path edges, the rockery, knot gardens and containers, the small impeccably formed gray-green mound celebrates a flowery encore if you shear one-third of its mass after the first bloom.

Showy, compact plants with strong stems and lots of purple-blue flowers on short, plump spikes. Attractive, fragant, mid-green foliage. Easier to keep as a nice mound of foliage and flowers than the larger-growing cultivars.
