Lavandula angustifolia ‘Lady’

English Lavender

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.315.260

Lavender is actually a low-growing shrub, native to the Mediterranean region. The fragrant flowers and foliage make it a favourite for herb gardens and in the perennial border. Excellent in tubs and containers, but in colder regions the plants may require shelter for the winter. This dwarf selection produces a dense, compact mound of gray-green foliage topped with loose clusters of soft lavender flower spikes. A real breakthrough for gardeners in short-season areas because it consistently flowers the first year. Great cut flower, either fresh or for drying and for edging. Attractive to butterflies. Prune lightly in early spring, no harder than 4 inches. Lavender MUST have good drainage in order to avoid root rot problems. Consider growing in a raised bed or rock garden. All-American Selections Winner.
