Hidcote, English Hybrid

Hidcote is an English Lavender hybrid; a lavandin. Blooming a little later than traditional English lavender, it continues blooming through mid-summer, making it a nice addition to the home garden. The lavandin's are sometimes referred to as the workhorses of lavender, because they bloom alot, grow to a nice size without getting gangly, and they have a delightful fragrance. Hidcote makes a wonderful border and works well in groupings with more in kind.

Seven of these delightful lavender plants await in the garden shed; my spaces are filling up. Where should these go?
