Details
18-24" tall x 18" wide (cutting propagated). 'Buena Vista' is a very special cultivar. It blooms twice per season (late spring and again in fall, in areas with a moderately long growing season), has superb fragrance and eye-catching, strongly bi-colored flowering spikes with a lax, informal habit. Bred in Oregon, 'Buena Vista's' attractive elongated flower spikes have very dark blue calyxes and lighter blue corollas (flowers) that are very different from more compactly flowered English lavenders like 'Hidcote Superior'. This is a distinctive and highly desirable cultivar not often available to the gardening public.

    This plant arrived well packaged. It waited for a pot for 4 weeks - my bad - and despite that, it is now in its forever spot and blooming wonderfully!

      This is a beautiful lavender. The description says it blooms twice per year, but it will display color all summer long on a good year.

      Comments about High Country Gardens Lavandula angustifolia Buena Vista:

      Very versatile in No. Calif. Sacramento Valley. Takes high heat areas next to concrete, good in regular garden setting too. Blooms twice a year with light shearing after spring bloom; hasn't gotten woody, remains compact and neat with spring trim. Does well with regular watering. I have it in my home garden, and in front of my business, many compliments on it.
      Long lived (6 years so far), Super easy and my most favorite lavender ever!!!

      Tips for Growing Lavender

      Lavender are sun-loving plants that thrive in hot weather and grow best in arid climates. Lavender plants will be taller and wider in mild winter, hot summer climates. The same varieties when grown in cold (zone 5-6) winter climates tend to be more compact. Lavender plants require two-to-three growing seasons to reach mature size.

      Lavender plants are at their best in the drier parts of the US like the Great Plains, Intermountain West and West Coast (which has a true Mediterranean climate (wet winters and dry summers). The key is to make sure you choose a variety with sufficient winter cold hardiness for your region. (‘Vera’ and ‘Pastor’s Pride’ are among the most cold hardy.) Yet with proper soil preparation, and planting site selection, Lavender can also thrive in moister, more humid climates like the Mid-West, East Coast and Mid-Atlantic states.

      • Plant in full sun with good air circulation.
      • Plant into well drained soil. Compost-enriched garden loam is alright in drier climates, sandy or gravel soil is best in moister climates. Heavy, poorly-drained clay soils will be fatal.
      • Select a raised or sloped bed, or a planting site against a hot wall or along a cement/asphalt walk or driveway where the reflected heat keeps growing conditions hotter and drier.
      • New transplants need regular watering. Don't let the plants get too dry. Supplemental watering can be greatly reduced the second growing season as the plants become established.
      • When using drip irrigation, place the emitter off to the side of the plant, not right on the root ball to avoid overwatering of mature plants.
      • Fertilize once annually in the fall with a top dressing of Yum Yum Mix.
      • Mulch with gravel or pine needles in arid climates. In moister climates mulching with gravel will protect the crown from excessive moisture and soil splashed onto the foliage.
