Lavandula angustifolia 'Mini Blue'
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal/Aromatic/Industrial Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 5-8)
When to Sow: Spring/Late Summer/Early Fall Ease of Germination: Moderate
Adorable compact lavender with short flower spikes perfect for edging, mass plantings, rock gardens and patio planters. Plants are highly uniform -- unusual for lavenders raised from seeds. Flowers the first season from seeds if started early. Must be located in full sun and planted in well drained alkaline sandy soil, ideally in a raised bed or rock garden as it is prone to root rot if conditions are too wet. Perfect for borders, rock gardens and containers. After the second year of growth, begin pruning once or twice a year, cutting back a third of its foliage. This will help maintain its shape, leaf and flower production as well as prevent woodyness. Flowers in June-July and are long lasting. Height 25-30cm/10-12".
