More Information

Description 'Essence Purple' Lavender has a rounded habit that looks effortlessly tidy in the landscape. While it is shorter than other lavender plants (reaching 18-24 inches tall), it blooms just as prolifically with lavender-blue flowers. It kicks off the lavender season as one of the first English lavenders to bloom in early summer. Butterflies and bees flock to the flowers as they bloom into early fall, providing months of interest in the garden.

While it may be called English lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), it's native to the Mediterranean, growing in dry and sandy soils. Given plenty of sun and well-draining soil, 'Essence Purple' lavender will reward you with multiple flushes of fragrant flowers. Try planting it in rock gardens, containers, or along walkways where the fragrance can be enjoyed all summer long.

Fertilizing: Lavender needs little in the way of fertilizer. However, if your plants are severely set back by winter damage, you could apply some granular garden fertilizer in early spring to give it a boost in its recovery.
Winterizing: Plants may get some damage in winter, which can be exacerbated by wet soil conditions.
Maintenance & pruning: Remove faded flowers to promote continued bloom. Prune once or twice a year to keep plant shapely. Prune in the spring after the lavender wakes up. Wait until the lavender has new growth (do not worry if it takes a while to wake up).

Good lavender

I needed some lavender by our front door and noticed these purple lavender. Shipping was good. Soil was still moist. Planted today. I can't wait for the fragrance next year.

Lavender plants

I ordered four plants but two look like they died. The other two are doing great. The two were drying up when they arrived but I watered them like the others and planted them after the 48 hours like the other two.
