SPANISH PINK LAVENDER Lavendula stoechas
This is a compact spanish Lavender with a profusion of long-lasting deep-pink blooms! Ideal for rack gardens, at the front of the perennial garden, or for formal edging!
Type: Hardy perennial
Height: 20 cm
Hardiness zones: 4-10
Seeds per pack: 10
Germination: As with many perennials, these benefit from a period of moist cold to help them break dormancy. This is done by giving them a cool 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:
Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cool area (but not freezing) for 4-5 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period.
