Lavender For Those Who Aren't Fond of Purple

When you hear the word lavender, what do you think of first?  The color, the plant, the fragrance, the phenomenally versatile essential oil...?  For many, a color palette from pale violet to vibrant purple is immediately conjured.  For some this is a welcome visual, but for others much less so.  Purple is a color that invokes strong reactions — we have found people either really love it or don't. 

For those in the latter camp, you are not alone, nor are you out of luck when it comes to growing lavender.  There are many varieties that boast beautiful, non-purple flowers.  There are pink lavenders, white lavenders and even a yellowy-green variety.

Some of our favorite non-purple varieties are...


  • Lavandula angustifolia "Hidcote Pink"
  • Lavandula angustifolia "Rosea"
  • Lavandula angustifolia "Jean Davis"


  • Lavandula angustifolia "Alba"
  • Lavandula x intermedia "Cathy Blanc" (pictured)
  • Lavandula x intermedia "Edelweiss"


  • Lavandula viridis

If the botanical names are a bit confusing, we have a botanical tutorial on how to read scientific plant names.

For those who want to add lavender to their gardens, but aren't thrilled about adding purple, the above options are striking and fragrant!

Beyond the garden, experiencing the daily-life benefits of lavender for the body, kitchen, home and pets without a lot of purple packaging can be hard.  For obvious reasons, shades of purple are an equally obvious packaging choice.  Not so at Pelindaba Lavender.  Our handcrafted products are presented in colors and materials to suit a wide range of non-purple aesthetic tastes. 

The crystalline clarity of our Lavender Linen Water packaging will reflect the decor of any bedroom or laundry room, and the black glass and bamboo lids of our white waxed Lavender Essential Oil Candles are both modern and elegant for both home and office.

Psst...don't tell anyone, several of our staff members love lavender, but aren't all that fond of purple either.  Really, you don't have to like purple to bring the many, joy-creating benefits of lavender into your daily life.
