Soil & Site
Prefers well drained and many sources list a lime content is needed. I have found the soil needs to be well drained or the plant will rot. I learned this through growing plants at my nursery. Plants at the well drained areas of the beds were more apt to survive the winter, than the low ends of the bed.
spikes, dark brown bracts, petals (corolla) start soft pink to mauve, fragrant
15 inch tall
I do my pruning in the spring time, leaving the plants for winter interest, cut back 50-75% in the spring (this is for L. angustifolia )
Introduced before 1937 (syn. Lavandula officinalis
