Lavandula heteropphylla Sweet Lavender

Young Sweet Lavender Bush 2000

This one year old Sweet Lavender is on its way to becoming a giant. One of the largest lavenders we grow; it will top out at close to four feet with its blooms.

This fast growing lavender is not suitable for cooking because of its high menthol content. It is a great specimen plant though 
and looks nice as a focal point when planted in groups of three or five. Just be sure to give it plenty of room.

Sweet Lavender is from France and Italy. It has a much greener leaf than most of the other lavenders, and has proven tough and reliable even when the temperatures dipped briefly to 5 degrees.

Sweet Lavender spikes reaching for the sky. They grow so tall maybe they will get there! Two feet or more is not uncommon for Sweet Lavender Flower wands. It blooms in early spring and continues until hot summer weather hits.
