Description

The Lavandula angustifolia plant typically grows in compact, bushy form, reaching a height of around 2 to 3 feet (60-90 cm). It features narrow, elongated leaves that are grayish-green in color, which emit a delightful fragrance when gently touched or crushed. In the summer months, Lavender produces slender, spiked flower stalks topped with clusters of small, fragrant flowers in shades of purple, lavender, and sometimes white.

Known for its calming and relaxing properties, Lavender is often used in aromatherapy, essential oils, and herbal remedies. Its delightful scent is also cherished for potpourri, sachets, and scented candles. Additionally, Lavender attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, making it a wonderful addition to gardens and landscapes.

Care Tips:

  1. Sunlight: Lavender plants require full sun exposure for at least 6-8 hours a day. Ensure they are placed in a location with ample sunlight to promote healthy growth and vibrant blooms.

  2. Soil: Lavender prefers well-draining soil that is slightly alkaline with a pH between 6.7 and 7.3. If your soil is heavy or clay-like, consider amending it with organic matter or sand to improve drainage.

  3. Watering: While Lavender is a drought-tolerant plant, it's important to provide adequate water during its establishment period. Once established, water sparingly and only when the soil is dry. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's better to underwater than overwater.

  4. Pruning: Regular pruning helps maintain the plant's shape, encourages bushier growth, and prolongs the life of the plant. After the flowering season, trim back the spent flower stems and shape the plant as desired. Avoid pruning into the woody parts of the stem as Lavender has limited capacity for new growth from old wood.

  5. Fertilization: Lavender is a relatively low-nutrient plant and excessive fertilization can negatively impact its fragrance and growth. If needed, apply a slow-release, balanced fertilizer sparingly in spring, but avoid fertilizing in late summer or fall.

  6. Winter Protection: Lavender is generally hardy, but in colder climates, it may require winter protection. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plant in late fall to help insulate the roots from harsh temperatures.

  7. Pests and Diseases: Lavender is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but it can occasionally be affected by issues like aphids or root rot. Monitor your plants regularly and take appropriate action if you notice any signs of infestation or disease.
