Lavender SuperBlue -
The English lavender angustifolia has always been a commoner in gardens around the world. This can be attributed to its herbaceous nature, the vibrant color of its foliage, and the ability to grow all through the seasons. A popular English Lavender for Lavender Farms.
The low growing herb, which originates from the Mediterranean region is defined by an attractive fragrance, especially in mid-summer. Just around this time too, the plant blooms in a vivid display of rich deep blue flowers, beautifully structured on spikes. The flowers often form a striking contrast to the plant’s greyish-green foliage which defines the presence of the Lavandula lavender throughout the seasons.
Just like most Mediterranean herbs, the lavender is not a particularly hard plant to grow. However, the garden area where they thrive should not be soggy, or water soaked at any point. This is primarily because the SuperBlue lavender is highly susceptible to root rot issues. In fact, the best place to plant it would be in a rock garden, where the drainage is great throughout the year. Besides, the plant grows best in generally loamy soils that are neutral or slightly basic. We recommend planting partly above ground level in loose sandy soil (where water completely drains away) in areas of full sun and complete air circulation.
Tending for the Superblue English lavender is an easy job. This is why it has been a mainstay of the gardens for so long. Apart from ensuring that the plant stays in an area where it receives full sunlight, you also need to make sure that in winter,the English Lavender is protected from the harsh cold. That aside, the plant needs very little water once it’s established. You only need to water the lavender during periods with extreme temperatures.
SuperBlue Lavender Pruning
Pruning this and most lavender plants is normally be done in early spring. Pruning the older stems or branches will keep your plants producing beautiful new growth over spring and summer. One of my favorite images on how to prune lavender plants is here at The Spruce.
Apart from using the Superblue English Lavender in the garden, and for its fragrant leaves - which once dried are great for scent - this perennial lavender works amazingly as a border plant for rock gardens, or as potted flowers.
