Quick Overview:

SWEET ROMANCE™ has the ability to bloom the first year with little or no vernalization. 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.


Grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained, alkaline soil in full sun. Root rot commonly attacks plants grown in poorly drained soils. Prefers a light, sandy soil with somewhat low fertility. Remove faded flowers to promote continued bloom. Prune to shape in spring after new leaves appear. Prune back to 8” in spring every 3 years to control plant size and to promote robust, new growth. To combat high humidity, consider using rock instead of organic mulch. English lavender has slightly better winter hardiness than lavandin (Lavandula x intermedia) but still may appreciate a sheltered location and winter protection.
