It prefers poor soils and low moisture.

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.

  • I love Sweet Romance Lavender! Im a novice and its so easy to grow. The flowers last a long time (its the middle of October and the plants are still in bloom!) and the smell is wonderful. I am purchasing more as its a winner!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
