Charleston Lavender Farm was established in 2003, with approximately 700 plants on a ½ acre site near Colfax, California. Six varieties of angustifolia and intermediate lavender (lavandin) are produced. Varieties vary from the early blooming sweet smelling Sachet to long stemmed late blooming Fred Boutin. Some particularly interesting varieties include Alba, a long stemmed white lavender and Hidcote, a striking deep purple, velvet textured flower. Premier- an early English lavender and Grosso- the most commonly grown lavender in the world, round out the six varieties.
We have a demonstration garden with approximately 25 different varieties of lavender. It’s great to be able to see so many different varieties in one place, especially when you are buying plants and want to see what the plants will look like.
