Its strong purple flowers arrive in abundance from early summer into the beginning of fall, much to the delight of pollinators, cut flower enthusiasts, and passersby. Its handsome gray-green foliage pops out of the landscape and can be used as an herb in many dishes - savory and sweet! Sweet Romance® is a stress-free garden addition, not just because lavender has stress-relieving properties! This perennial grows well in difficult sites - whether it's dry, hot, or low in nutrients. As long as it has well-draining soil and plenty of sun, it's bound to succeed in your garden. Details Botanical name: Lavandula angustifolia 'Kerlavangem'
Patent #: USPP 23,001
Common name: Lavender
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 12-18" x 12-18"
Flower color: Lavender
Foliage color: Gray-green
Season of interest: Summer through fall
Uses: Container gardening, cottage gardening, edging, ground cover, massing, ornamental, herb garden, cut flower garden, pollinator garden
How To Grow Soil: Any well-drained soil will do. Lavender cannot tolerate wet soils for any length of time.
Light: Sun (6+ hours sun)
Water: Dry to average. Very tolerant of dry conditions once established.

Fertilizing: Lavender needs little in the way of fertilizer. However, if your plants were severely set back by winter damage, you may wish to apply some granular garden fertilizer in early spring to give them a boost in their 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 the plant shapely. Prune option #1: in the spring after the lavender wakes up. Wait until the lavender has signs of new growth (do not worry if it takes a while to wake up).

2 of 3 arrived dead. Luckily found exact replacements at a local nursery. Bummer because I had decent luck ordering plants online until this one

DOA?

I’m not sure if they’re alive or if I can save them. They both arrived bone dry with much of the soil spilled out of the cup. It appeared that the plant had recently been placed in the soil. Some of the leaves were already crunchy. I didn’t want to stress it too much. I gave it a few pinches of my manure/casting mix. I watered it with some water from my koi pond. They will start with some gentle morning sun tomorrow, as I don’t think they can handle much. We will see if they can recover. Fingers crossed.

Very Disappointing

My plants arrived healthy. I planted them in my garden and within a couple of weeks all 4 of them had died. Haven't a clue why. I kept them watered and planted them in the desired sunlight.
Also funny, In a different part of my garden I planted the 2 phlox plants I had ordered and they 2 have ,after a couple of months, died.
The stange thing is plants around them are thriving.

Sad lavender plants arrived

My "Sweet Romance" Lavender Plants arrived bone dry and wilted. Will be working to try to hopefully revive them but one seems to be completely beyond hope.

It's All About The Water

I too had my first order of two Sweet Romance die as well. I followed the instructions on the website and read a lot of articles on this specific plant, I placed them in a 6+ hours sunny area and kept the water dry to average, but to no avail. I contacted customer services, which are amazing by the way, they told me since I live in Houston, TX and I ordered them in the middle of the summer that may be the reason they died, and they refunded me the cost of the plants. I was adamant I wanted this specific lavender in my garden so, I ordered two more and had them delivered in late September when it was cooler. I planted them and I noticed they were not happy and started to slowly die as the two prior had done so I went against what all the articles were telling me and I started watering them every day. The dying plants are back and very strong. What those articles are not telling you is if one is transplanting very young lavender, like those we are sent, you must water every day so they are happy and are encouraged to grow. The one on the right was a lot worse than what you see and the one on the left used to look like the one on the right, so great improvement. Now that I know what I need to do to help them grow, I need to order six more to complete my garden design.
