Lavandula angustifolia Aromatico Blue

English Lavender

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.315.020

(=‘Lablusa’) 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. Will also grow fine in tubs or containers, but in colder regions the plants may then need shelter for the winter. This bushy selection produces silver-grey foliage and spikes of deep violet-blue flowers over a long season, blooming a few weeks before most other types. 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. A vegatative selection introduced by international breeder S&G Flowers.
