Lavender is a highly popular perennial that is used in both perennial and herb gardens. Considered an ‘evergreen shrub’, there are a number of different species, and hundreds of cultivars. Tiny tubular flowers in shades of blue, purple or white are set on numerous stems that cover the plant. The flowers are often cut and dried for use in dried flower arrangements or potpourri. Plant height can vary between 1-3’ depending on species and cultivar.

English lavender species have been mainstays of herb gardens for many years, and are commercially planted for the harvesting of oils for use in perfumes. English lavender varieties are more often used for culinary purposes than other types of lavender.

Lavender grows in alkaline soils in full sun. Well-drained soils are required, particularly in winter. Remove faded summer flowers to promote continued bloom. Prune back to 8 in spring every 3 years to control plant size and to promote robust, new growth.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
