Vera English Lavender

Also known as True or Common Lavender, this strain of Lavendula angustifolia is considered the reference for the species. While colloquially described as "English" lavender, the species is actually native to Spain. It produces lush purple flowers with a slightly open profile. Lavenders bloom prolifically after one year of establishment, and if spring sown can often provide a small flush of blossoms in their first year. Lavendula angustifolia is the hardiest of all lavenders, so this one is good for climates that have harsher winters.

Harvest flowers after 120 days. Perennial.

Size: Packet: 100 seeds (0.1 gram)
