‘Vera’ is widely held as one of the best oil producing lavenders, so if aromatherapy or gifts from the garden are your passion, this English, narrow-leaved lavender is the one for you. Drought and deer resistant once established, ‘Vera’ thrives in poorer soils and sunny spots, blooming both in spring and late summer. (Lavandula angustifolia)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

16-18” tall x 24-30” wide. ‘Vera’ English Lavender is considered an heirloom lavender, displaying excellent cold hardiness and grey, narrow foliage in a mid-range habit. Thin blooms are held aloft from the plant, making it an easy lavender to harvest for sachets, potpourris, or what it is known for, oil production. The abundant blooms are covered in pollinators in late spring, and like most English lavenders, it will bloom again in the early fall if the plant is sheared after the blossoms fade in summer. Make sure to site ‘Vera’ lavender in well-drained soil with plenty of sunshine – more than 6 hours a day is best. Good spacing keeps ventilation high and fungal disease low. Although ‘Vera’ is considered an English lavender, it comes from the Mediterranean regions of Europe and therefore thrives in poorer soils, maintaining high drought resistance once established.
