Truly sensational! Long blooming with improved heat, humidity, and cold tolerance! Large purple fragrant spikes on strong stems tower above its broad silver foliage for substantial impact. Individual florets are large and held more open. Stunning!

Ideal for fresh or dried bouquets, the flowering stems of Lavandula Sensational are upright and straight. Its branching habit results in significant rebloom resulting in a longer blooming season. This variety exhibits a strong, pleasant lavender fragrance that is floral rather than pungent. Foliage and flowers will be most fragrant from young stems. Cutting promotes better foliage and flowering. The taller stature of this variety will make a lovely hedge. Evergreen in warmer climates. Deer tend to refrain from nibbling on Lavender.

Lavandula General Information

Lavandula are an indispensable member of the herb family, used for perfumes and potpourri. Use it in dry gardens, barren slopes, or bordering a sunny path. Its ornamental compact habit makes it a welcome addition to the perennial border. Evergreen in warmer zones. Semi-evergreen in north. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Lavandula Plant Care

Best in full sun and well-drained soil. Good drainage and air circulation is essential to success. 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.
