Vera Lavender - English Lavender
Lavandula angustifolia Vera is an English Lavender well known for its oil production. This heirloom lavender is cold hardy into areas of zone 5. Although, it is listed as being heat hardy into zone 10, the Vera and other lavender plants often do not perform their best in areas of the south with humid summers (examples being states of TN, GA, SC, FL, AL, MS, LA).
Plant Vera Lavender in full sun away from any structures for full air circulation. This Old Fashion English Lavender grows best in sandy soil, loamy soil and even grows well in poor soil as long as there is excellent drainage.
Matures in the 15 to 18 inch height range spreading up to 30 inches wide. The blue purple blooms appear from early to late summer. Shear in late summer when the blooms begin to fade for another round of lavender flowers.
Vera Lavender is grown in the United States and Europe for lavender oil production. This is an excellent subsitute lavender variety for Hidcote Lavender.
Vera Lavender is grown in 3.5 inch pots.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.
Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.
This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
