LoreThe lavenders have been grown in Europe long before Linnaeus's time and he named both this genus and species. Lavandula is derived from the Latin verb lavo or lavandus - to wash, because the Romans used it extensively in their ablutions and it was often used for fragrance in their famous baths. It has remained a widely cultivated crop for the oil that adds fragrance to perfumes and cosmetics. Many lavenders thrive in the arid West, but some varieties are best grown as annuals or container plants in the South, as they do not thrive in areas of high humidity, however Lavendula dentata and L. Stoechas are exceptions. Spanish lavenders are great for cut and dried flower arrangements.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; reaches 14 to 20 in. tall, 12 to 18 in. wide.
Bloom TimeSummer
Design IdeasA superior plant for Mediterranean climates treated as shrub or perennial. Preference for well drained soil makes a good candidate for hot, dry slopes and banks. Rugged enough for rock gardens in warm climates where it is likely to naturalize. Exceptional component of Mediterranean style gardens both formal and casual. With similar requirements as western natives, it is suitable for xeriscape or wild gardens in dry climates. Suited to traditional mixed borders with perennials and flowering shrubs. Performs in large artistic pots and particularly beautiful in classical style with antique finish. An indispensable component of herb gardens.
