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.
