CARE
Care Thrives in lean, loose, fast-draining, slightly alkaline soil; avoid heavy, soggy soils. Plant with crowns slightly above soil level. Water regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates periodic drought. Remove spent flowers to promote continued bloom.
HISTORY
Lore This lavender hybrid has the lovely tall spikes of its English lavender parentage (L. latifolia), with the added advantage of better heat tolerance from its Portuguese lavender parentage (L. latifolia). It is more adaptable to a wider range of soils, and although it thrives in nutrient poor, loose soils of an alkaline nature, it will tolerate acidic soils much better than many other lavenders.
