Lavandula angustifolia


English Lavender

Interestingly enough, English lavender is actually native to the Mediterranean. It is an evergreen plant which grows to a height of 1.5 metre with a spread of 1 metre. The leaves are greyish green and linear. The flowers are purple.


The flowers and leaves of this species can be collected and used for pot pourris.


English Lavender does well in reasonably dry, well drained soil in an open and sunny position. It is drought and frost resistant. It can be grown from seed, or propagated by division. Shear new growth frequently to keep the plant compact, but be careful not to cut into the old, woody stems.
