Lavandula angustifolia 'Pink Perfume' - English Lavender

There are of course, an astonishing number of cultivars available on the market now but those we are offering are all reliable and robust examples of this genus and true forms (many plants now offered on the market are seed raised and not original forms). They all require sun and good drainage without exception but are very hardy plants. The ideal soil is a gritty or sandy loam with a pH of between 6-8. A limey soil is fine. If your soil does not meet this criteria you can of course grow them successfully in pots.
Hardy in zones 5-9.
