Lavender angustifolia is one of the richest in essential oils, meaning more fragrance power both fresh and dried. And this ‘Rosea’ cultivar is the original, first true pink-flowered lavender! Fresh flowers can be crystalized and used in candies and cakes; dried flowers are used in potpourris and satchets; oils are used in creams and perfumes. And these are only some of the more common uses – imagination can create endless more!
An evergreen perennial, Lavender ‘Rosea’ has green leaves instead of the blue or gray green of other lavenders.Reaching 9 to 12 inches high and 12 to 18 inches wide, it boasts 2 1/2 inch, linear, downy leaves on strong stems. Stalks of delicate pink flowers grow up to 12 inches tall.
Grow in a well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil in an open, sunny spot. Trim back in spring to encourage bushier growth; also deadhead after flowering. Pkt is 100 seeds.
