Lavandula angustifolia 'Lady' - English Lavender

Lavender is a perennial evergreen shrub with narrow, silver, needlelike leaves on bushy plant up to 10 inches tall. The lavender-blue flowers appear in summer and stretch up about 6 inches higher.

Growing Know-How: Plant in full sun and clean, well-drained soil 12 inches apart. Mulch with an inch or two of coarse sand. Give the plant time to reemerge in spring before trimming. In areas with mild winters, you can shear growing lavender into a low hedge, knot, or edging. Remove faded flowers.

Cultivars: Dozens of cultivars are available. 'Lavender Lady', which reaches about 10 inches high, grows relatively quickly. It will flower the first year after planting. It is hardy in zones 5-9.

The perennial plants are "homegrown" by Hirt's and ready for shipment. In cold regions simply place the plants on the windowsill until you are ready to plant outside in the spring.
