I picked up nearly 30 of these on clearance at a local nursery. Despite being planted in the middle of a dearth on a hill, they all made it and continued to bloom well into the Fall. I had a hard time deciding when to prune it back because my honeybees were still sourcing the blooms! This a is wow plant! So pleasant smelling, easy to care for - all of which makes it "sweet."

Gardeners around the world have been growing lavender for centuries for its intensely fragrant flowers, beautiful appearance, and ease of culture.
Along comes SWEET ROMANCE™, destined to become a favorite because of its ability to bloom the first year. Additionally, it begins to flower a bit earlier in the season, typically in early summer and lasting into early fall.
The grey-green foliage forms a compact mound topped with plump, rich violet purple flower wands that are perfect for cutting for fresh and dried bouquets. Clusters of tiny flowers appear at the nodes up the stem in addition to the terminal inflorescence, adding color down into the plant.Sweet Romance® Lavandula angustifolia 'kerlavangem' USPP 23,001, Can 4,906
