Lavandula angustifolia SWEET ROMANCE® ('Kerlavangem' PP23001 CPBR4906) (20)ct Flat
Common Name: English Lavender
Gardeners around the world have been growing lavender for centuries for its intensely fragrant flowers, beautiful appearance, and ease of culture. Along comes SWEET ROMANCE®, destined to become a favorite of growers and retailers because of its ability to bloom the first year with little or no vernalization. Additionally, it begins to flower a bit earlier in the season, typically in early summer and lasting into early fall.
The grey-green foliage forms a compact mound topped with plump, rich violet purple flower wands that are perfect for cutting for fresh and dried bouquets. Clusters of tiny flowers appear at the nodes up the stem in addition to the terminal inflorescence, adding color down into the plant.
Lavender must be grown in full sun to be able to produce flowers, so do not hesitate to plant them in those hot, dry areas where nothing else seems to grow. They will actually grow better in poor, gravelly soil than in rich humus; don't be tempted to enrich the soil when you plant it. Sharp drainage, especially in winter, is essential for preventing crown rot. Other than that, Lavender is known to have few problems with pests and diseases. Shearing back the evergreen foliage in early spring will rejuvenate plants and stimulate new growth.
