Lavandula angustifolia Rosea: Pot Grown Pink Lavender

Lavender Rosea is an English lavender that carries lilac-pink flowers over grey-green foliage from May-June into August-September; as with so many plants, flowering depends on the weather and where you are in the UK.
Lavender's tight growth habit and wonderful scent mean it is an excellent choice for a low growing hedging and edging plant. The scent of a lavender hedge fills the air around a seating area, creating a zone of summer tranquillity that few other plants can match. The flowers of all lavenders are a favourite of bees and butterflies, giving you an aerial display as you sit back and enjoy the heady scent of the full blooms.

See our selection of evergreen hedging or our range of hedging plants.

Delivery season: This is weather dependent. At present we expect to have plants ready from the end of April onwards, but if the weather is cold dates can slip into May. There is nothing to be gained from trying to plant lavender out before nighttime temperatures rise consistently as the shock simply sets it back, and it establishes more slowly and flowers less well than lavender planted when everything is warmer. The smallest lavenders, in P9 pots, are never shipped before May in any event. If you are not happy with these potentially uncertain timings, please order elsewhere: we guarantee our plants and like to see them do well...

Choosing a size:

  • For window boxes and other cramped spaces, start with the smallest plants, which come in P9 pots and are a year old. If you plant them outside, do it from the end of May when the soil is nice and warm. They are the cheapest way to buy a lavender hedge, but you will have to wait a year or two longer for them to knit together.
  • For borders, hedges and edges, two-year-old plants in 1 or 3 litre pots are ideal. You get more root and more flower in the first year, and they do not look lost planted at one plant every 13" (33cms). By the end of the first summer, they will have joined up.
  • For specimen shrubs that provide instant impact, buy larger plants in 3 litre pots.

Growing Pink English Lavender

All lavender must have good drainage and close to full sun. They prefer poor soil, and will thrive in exposed coastal sites. When established, they are pretty much totally drought tolerant, but in the first and second year you should water them as you would any other new shrub to make sure they establish well.

Otherwise, this is a very hardy subject that is unattractive to rabbits, deer and other "browsers"; very few grazing animals eat scented foliage if they can help it.

There is an art to keeping lavender going year in and year out and preventing it from becoming woody. There are different approaches to this, but the essential thing is to cut all the new growth down to two or three buds in the second half of August or early September, once the flowers have faded.

Spacing a Pink Lavender hedge: Like most formal hedging, plant at 3 per metre, 33cm apart in a single row.

Rosea Lavender in your Garden

Lavender's finest display is as an ornamental hedge, and if you are planting it as a specimen in borders, we recommend planting in clumps of three or five.

Did You Know?

Its name comes from the Latin word lavare, to wash, as its heavenly smell and antibacterial properties made it so popular for use in Roman baths and laundries, and Legionaries carried it for use in bandages. The flower harvest can be used for making homemade lavender cooking oil and distilled essential oils for the bath, soap, as incense or in an invigorating massage. They also provide one way of making pink lemonade!

Crucifixes woven from lavender were used to ward off evil for centuries, and the old belief that couples who used lavender to fragrance their bedsheets would never argue is probably due to the fact that pleasant, relaxing smells are great for helping people to get a good night's sleep.
