Lavandula angustifolia, commonly known as the English Lavender is a compact and bushy low shrub that is native to Mediterranean region. Rosea is a stunning variety that, unlike the traditional purple Lavenders, blooms pink flowers throughout the summer. Lavender is a very popular small garden plant that is used as a low hedge or along a path as edging. Its leaves produce fragrant aroma when brushed against each other by the wind.
Rosea Lavandula produces fragrant rose-pink flowers on dense tall spikes that appear in summer. The flowers are neatly held above Rosea’s elegant grey-green leaves. Rosea flowers are highly attractive to bees and butterflies, thus adding wildlife interest to your garden. Both its leaves and flowers are harvested to produce essential oil used in perfumes. Lavender releases strong fragrance on a sunny day.
It is a sun-loving plant that will thrive in dry soil that is rich in humus and well-drained. Lavender can perform equally well receiving a few hours of partial shade in afternoon. Slightly alkaline soil will help in increasing the life of the plant.
Although it does not demand any fertilizer, applying an annual organic feed in spring will ensure healthier growth. Trim the stalks after flowering but be careful not to cut into old wood. Prune Lavender Rosea in spring or early autumn before new growth emerges.
Lavender Rosea looks great as low hedges and in front of perennial borders. It is ideal in mass plantings in cottage gardens, scented gardens and herb gardens. It is a versatile garden plant that provides interesting summer colours and used for its culinary and medicinal purposes.
