Hardy Lavender Product Details

Botanical Name: Lavendula angustifolia

Height: 15 - 20 inches.

Spacing: 12" - 18".

Depth: Plant with the crown at soil surface.

Spread: 15 - 20 inches.

Sun/Shade: Full sun to partial shade.

Color: Purple-lavender.

Foliage: Gray-green almost white when young, evergreen needle-like, 1-1/2" long, 1/4" wide foliage.

Blooms: Mid-Summer into early Fall.

Form: Rounded.

Flower Form: Many very tiny flowers form whorls along a terminal spike up to 8" long.

Soil Requirements: A well drained, sandy soil is important.

Growth Rate: Moderate once established, which takes approximately 4 - 6 weeks.

Pruning: In the Spring after buds break, if using for drying, trim back spent flower stems and shear back to 12" - 15" annually.

Size: 1/4 - 1/2 inch.

Comments: Not only is this perennial indispensable for its strong fragrance but it is a lovely component for the garden. The neat mounds can be used as low hedges, edges for a border, interplanted amongst other perennials in a flower bed and it is very attractive in a container. Lavender has been a garden favorite for years and the flowers can be cut to dry for fragrancing at home. This is one of the most durable available and asks only for hot Summer sun and a well drained site out of wind. Thrives in baking hot situations where many other plants will not grow.

low maintenance color
Reviewed By: Kathy (VErnal, UT)
I bought 3 of these plants about 7 years ago. I planted and watered them the first year and after that I've completely neglected them and yet 2 of the 3 continue to flourish with no care. (zone 6)

Give it some time
Reviewed By: Virginia (Brooklyn, NY)
Like others, I felt these plants looked terrible out of the box. For the first few months they dident grow at all and I thought they were goners. Its July now, and they look healthy and I expect them to start filling in next summer!

wonderful
Reviewed By: jacque (Manti, UT)
These plants have done extremely well. They look like death when they come out of the box, but after just one summer season, they are bigger and bulkier and flowering more prolifically than the lavender that I bought at a local nursery. I will order more!

Slow Start
Reviewed By: Don (Mena, Arkansas)
Looked like dried plant when received but planted as directed in pots. I didn't think they were ever going to live but they all (3) eventually began to green up and over a period of 6 months bushed out to a nice looking, but small plant. They all had a few blooms. I have planted them all in a 4x4 raised bed in the garden and look forward to them taking off next spring.

disappointed
Reviewed By: LJL (Platteville, WI)
We planted about 15 of these plants in the spring. They are SO beautiful in the catalog, that I just couldn't wait for them to start growing and doing something-anything. Well, they haven't done a thing. My husband continues to mow around them, but would much rather mow right over top of them. They look the same now, as they did when we took them out of the box, about 5 inches tall and kind of a grayish color. I haven't given up on them yet-but don't know why.

Fragrant and Full
Reviewed By: Marji (Newark, DE)
I ordered two of these - one did better than the other. The weak one is small, but shows promise and the strong one is just beautiful. It is fragrant and the blossom are healthy and robust. Wish the other one would catch on!

florida lavender
Reviewed By: Cassandra (Bradenton, Fl)
I purchased 1 plant just to see, living in the Fl climate I know certain things want grow, no matter what you try. This plant tried to green up, after 6 weeks still just a hint of green and no real growth. To many warm days or what, I'm still waiting for the growth.

WONDERFUL
Reviewed By: JR BARON (GREGORY, MI)
This was planted in a sandy sunny spot next to front porch and it grew to a wonderful size so quickly and was a wonderul scent by the front door and porch in the country. Yes, you can use lavender for tea and drawer sachets and my son makes lavender lemonade and also used it to season chicken with other fruit! Also, instead of moth balls on clothes to keep out moths. Spiders also don't like it, nor do mosquitoes. So, it is good to plant by decks or porches for that reason. I moved to TN so now want one at this new location.

Big disappointment
Reviewed By: Connie (Wilhoit, Arizona)
We planted these THREE TIMES (3 plants each time). Not one lived. They didn't even try to turn green. They may do great in the mid-west or in the east. But here (Zone 7), they don't like us at all.
