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.
Flowering period: Early from mid-May through to July
Cultivars: ‘Maillette’, ‘Dwarf Blue’; ‘Imperial Gem’, ‘Twickle Purple’, ‘Miss Katherine’, ‘Little Lady’.
