Sweet Lavender Product Details
Evergreen perennial/small shrub
Partial Shade/Full Sun
A broad mound 18 - 24"
18" - 24" +
12" - 18"
5 - 8
Gray-green almost white when young, evergreen needle-like, 1 1/2" - 2" long, 1/4" wide.
Many very tiny flowers form whorls along a terminal spike up to 8" long.
Where marginally hardy, plant near a sunny wall.
A well-drained, sandy soil is important.
Moderate once established, which takes approximately 4 - 6 weeks.
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 a home. This is one of the most durable available and asks only for hot summer sun and a well drained site out of the wind. Thrives in baking hot situations where many other plants will not grow.
Trim back spent flower stems & shear back to 12" - 15" annually.
This plant does not like humid weather. Tends to like it more on the dry side, which also helps deter disease.

Lavender will really take off after they have been in the ground for a year. Will get blooms the first summer, but not a lot. Be aware that they cannot tolerate really wet winters. I have 2 that are 12 yrs old, & the past 2 wet winters here have taken their tole on 1 of them. They have gotten to be about 4 ft wide in that length of time though & have thousands of blooms @ least twice in a season. Love them.
