(Lavandula multifida)
EXCLUSIVE - Fernleaf looks distinctively different than other garden lavenders. It has deeply lobed fern-like, silvery leaves that give the foliage a handsome lacy appearance and long stems topped with graceful blue-violet trident-form flowers. Easily grown from seed, this first year flowering perennial has a bushy habit and blooms all summer long. Fernleaf foliage is highly aromatic with a hint of oregano and highly attractive to butterflies. Great for borders, beds, and containers.
Seed Count: Approx. 45 / Weight: 0.03 gms

BEST TO PLANT INDOORS

In early spring, sow lavender seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Cover very lightly and keep at 60 to 70°. Keep evenly moist but not soggy until seedlings slowly emerge over 7 to 14 days, providing a good light source. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant 2 inches apart into deeper containers. Plant outside in a well-drained sunny spot when plants are 2 to 3 inches tall after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.

 

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space 18 inches apart when seedlings are well established.

 

GROWING NOTES

Because perennial lavender’s small seeds germinate slowly and unevenly,we strongly recommend starting them indoors so you can tend them carefully. After seedlings are well established, plant them out in a sunny spot with excellent drainage and good air circulation or in big,welldrained pots. Plants flower lightly the first season and come into full bloom in their second summer. After blooming season, prune and shape the plants while cutting off spent flower stalks. If their requirements are met, these sturdy plants will take more humidity than other lavenders. Fernleaf plants are beacons for butterflies all summer long.
