Description

This lavender has the classic purple color that gardens love in a consistent and compact size that makes it usable in gardens, borders and mass plantings. Unlike some other lavenders it is cultivated to grow in the first year of planting and consistently each year after. In early summer, silver foliage shoots forth a multitude of stems, which terminate in a plump cluster of purple flowers above smaller isolated flower buds that grow up and down each stem. Sweet Romance makes a great addition to a cut flower bouquet and the plant itself has many fine qualities as an aromatic herb.

Lavender is a classic plant with many medicinal uses and it has a unique ability to grow in poor dry soil where many other plants fail. It is very resistant to pests and disease, but poor drainage will lead to crown rot, so site selection in an area with good winter drainage is essential. Cutting back plants in the early winter will help soil dry out and reduce the risk of rot. Plants should be grown in poor soil so avoid soil improvements or fertilizers
