The Long Blooming Lavender Collection hits all the
important marks that lavender lovers look for, including an entire season’s
worth of blooms. Traditional ‘Munstead’ brings gray-green foliage on foot-tall
plants and a heady dose of classic fragrance that English lavenders are known
for, while ‘SuperBlue’ elaborates on this theme with petal-packed blooms that
deliver more overall color saturation. ‘Hidcote is another English lavender,
growing to 2 feet tall, with a delightful twist; this variety will bloom again
for you in early autumn if you trim it back in mid summer. ‘Phenomenal’
lavender also grows to 2 feet and has wowed the plant world with its
exceptional vigor in unfriendly climates – most notably surviving in humidity,
which has been the undoing of many other lavenders. At two and a half feet,
‘Dilly Dilly’ is the tallest variety in this collection and matures into a
rounded shrub-like plant, perfect for edging walkways and paths.
Success with Lavender:
Originating in the
Mediterranean, lavender prefers hot sunny days, dry air, and non-enriched,
well-drained soil. While that’s great news for those gardening in the West,
nowadays lavender can also be successfully grown in higher-humidity areas of
the East and Pacific Northwest very successfully by remembering its basic
needs. Be sure to pick a variety that is matched to your area. Depending upon
your location and your desired use, there are lavenders for almost any setting.
Next, follow the four basic elements to ensure lavender success:
1. SUN Lavender loves sun. Plant them in a sunny
location where there is plenty of air circulation. Six to eight hours of sun is
best, but some afternoon shade is fine in the hotter climates of the Southwest.
2. AIR Good air circulation is essential,
especially in areas of high humidity. Lavender is not fond of damp, still air,
which makes it prone to root rot. In humid areas, plant them with ample
spacing, keeping in mind the mature size of your plant when in bloom and
allowing for a bit extra space for good circulation.
3. SOIL Well-drained soil. This is perhaps the
most important factor in success with lavender. One rule of thumb from is that
the soil should be loose enough to dig with your hands, and not cake-like. You
can add sand or small gravel to recreate this consistency if your soil is too
compact. In areas where drainage may be a problem, mound the soil up to create
a raised row or stand-alone mound.
In humid areas
especially, a 1-2” mulch of pea sized gravel or white sand will do two things –
it will help improve drainage, and it will reflect heat and light back up into
the plant. More heat = more fragrant blooms! If you use a weed barrier, make
sure it is breathable so the soil can drain and the roots can breathe.
Gardeners struggling with growing lavender successfully in humid areas are
encouraged to try planting Lavender Phenomenal.
4. WATER During the first year of your lavender’s
growth it needs to establish a good root system. It will require regular
watering (unless you’re experiencing healthy rain fall). Starting in the second
year, your lavender will need less water, as it becomes the water-thrifty plant
you’re hoping for, but to get there it needs to grow deep roots in year one. By
the end of year three it will have reached its mature size and shouldn’t need
any extra water. If water is needed, water in the morning, and deeply, to help
root growth. A mature lavender plant is happy with only 9-12 inches of rain per
year, but remember, with the right variety and good drainage lavender can
thrive with more water.
