Lavendula Sarah

A very compact, aromatic selection. Dark violet flowers. With its neat, tidy appearance, it is very good for edging or in containers.

Plant requirements

An indispensable member of the herb family, used for perfumes and potpourri. Its ornamental compact habit along with gray green scented foliage make it a welcome addition to the perennial border. Flowers in summer. Use it in dry gardens, barren slopes, or bordering a sunny path. Deer resistant, good for hot dry spots, avoid too moist, fragrant, also dries easily.

 

Maintenance

Best in full sun and well drained loose alkaline soil. In clay soils, may benefit from planting in raised beds. Cut back by 1/3 to 1/2 in spring when new foliage appears. Do not cut back in fall. These woody plants do not like to be divided. Sometimes stems root where they touch the soil, and these plantlets can be transplanted in spring. May benefit from gravel mulch.
