Greenwood Nursery announces the addition of 3 new lavender varieties to their spring inventory: Phenomenal Lavender, Pink Perfume Lavender and Blue River Lavender.
Lavender plants have become more popular in home gardens over the past few years. Characteristics such as drought tolerance, low water requirements, low maintenance, grows in poor soil, long summer blooms, great for cut flowers, and soothing garden fragrance put them on the list for the best garden plants.
Hardy as far north as zone 4, the Phenomenal Lavender has proven to be cold hardy and experiences little winter die back. The Phenomenal Lavender is mounded shaped and shown to resist root rot and powdery mildews.
The Pink Perfume Lavender is smaller growing lavender that is just right for small yards. This drought tolerant plant produces rosy pink flowers from May through September that are sure to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.
The small growing Blue River Lavender is perfect for growing in containers that can be placed throughout your garden or patio for splashes of dark purple during the summer season.
Many garden plants do lend themselves to growing indoors. “Smaller growing lavender varieties, such as the Blue River, can be grown indoors. A spot with 5 to 6 hours of sunlight and limited drafts works best place for this type of plant.” Notes Cheryl Jones, owner of Greenwood Nursery. “Use a sandy soil mix so that water drains through without standing.”
Greenwood Nursery ships plants from their online plant catalog throughout the continental United States. Visit the Greenwood Nursery Online Garden Center for a wide selection of lavender plants, herbs, ornamental grasses, shrubs, trees and other perennial plants for the home garden.
