Description for Lavender Plant

Lavender plants are considered perennial shrubs mostly grown for decoration purposes, and more than often as indoor decorations. Indoor they can be grown by supplying the proper amount of light and care. Outdoor, they thrive pretty under full sun. They tend to have a stunted growth under shade or dappled light and is known to grow best during late spring and early summer. In countries like England, Spain, France, and Egypt these flowers are most common and found in abundance. In Egypt, they are used for handicraft purposes which emit a rich and heavy aroma. A number of colors are associated with the flowers, for instance, light magenta, light purple, light red, and light rose.

Their leaves are generally pale grey in colors and taste slightly bitter. Parts of the plant like leaves, stems, and flowers are edible. English lavender tastes the best.

Ideally, they must receive 8 hours’ of full sunlight.

Well-drained and sandy soil with high organic value is most suitable for these plants. It is best to grow them in pots if the soil is clay. The pH value should be of 6.5 to 7.5. Acidic soil is also considered harmful for these plants as it shortens their lifespan.

During the initial months, regular watering should be done. A small amount of slow-release fertilizer also works wonder for them. Composting around the plant would also make the blooms healthy and it would further improve the drainage. 

They grow best in a warm climate. The optimum temperature must be maintained around 80  ͦ F and the minimum in 40  ͦ  F. During harsh winters, the potted lavenders are usually brought indoors and kept as close as possible to sunlight since they cannot survive extreme cold.

They do not need regular fertilizing. Excess fertilization damages the foliage which in turn hampers proper flowering. 

Caring for Lavender

Inadequate light can stunt their growth or decrease the rate of flowering. The pruning should be done according to the type of the plant, for example, Lantana should be strictly pruned during winter or early spring. A timely pruning would help in reducing the dead growths. Watering should be reduced during the winter season and if you are potting them chose a pot with a hole.
