Lavandula pedunculata ‘Dedication’ “Pukehou”® – Originating from the North Island of New Zealand, the Maori influence is reflected in the name of this Lavender. Bred at Pukehou Nursery in Manakau,  this striking Lavender makes a compact and colourful aromatic hedge. It is also famed for its humidity tolerance.

‘Pukehou’ translates to ‘Hill of Dedication’ which is named after a hill in the town on Manakau. Legend has it that one of the Maori chiefs leapt off its escarpment and since then the hill has become a local landmark.
