About Lavender Angustifolia (English) Plants
Lavandula angustifolia is the most widely cultivated Lavandula species. Often called English Lavender, it is actually a native of the western Mediterranean, particularly the mountains of northern Spain.
Both its delicate foliage (angustifolia means narrow leaf) and bright, abundant flowers are strongly aromatic and their pinkish-purple colouring most closely matches what we know as ‘lavender’. Lavandula angustifolia grows vigorously and tolerates both low temperatures and acid soils but is happiest in a neutral-alkaline environment.
The flowering period is from mid-May through to July.
