Details

Lavandula angustifolia Wee One is a wonderful dwarf English Lavender with compact heads of clear blue flowers and dark blue calyxes; this slow growing little beauty is great for small spaces. In flower, the mature plant is only about 10" in height. While slow growing, it is very xeric, has excellent heat tolerance and will reach mature size by the end of the third growing season. 'Wee One' is thought to be a bee pollinated garden cross between 'Thumbelina Leigh' and Dwarf White English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia 'Nana Alba'). It was discovered by High Country Garden's Chief Horticulturist, David Salman. A High Country Gardens exclusive introduction. A Plant Select Petite winner.

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.

These perennials are a superb choice for the drought-resistant garden, doing 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). In the Mid-West and Eastern US, sandy soils are a must, and planting on a slope or in a raised bed provides optimum drainage. For the southern US with hot, humid heat, Spanish Lavender (Lavandula stoechas) is the best choice. For large growing Lavender, we recommend French Lavender or hybrid Lavender (Lavandula intermedia) varieties. 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. Lavender Phenomenal does particularly well in areas with more moisture and humidity.

  • 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.

I bought two of these Spring 2016 for a condominium community herb garden. One of the plants failed almost immediately. But the other one has just exploded!! In just 15 months, it has grown at an amazing rate. Last summer, it bloomed twice. It survived a brutal winter up here in Washington State near the Canadian border. This spring, it just keeps filling out and is in full bloom on June 24. Great spread - will have to move this in the fall to a spot where it can just keep going! Picture includes a 12" ruler to display the height. This is the shortest lavender I've ever seen (thus its name), but this is hardly a small plant. It has a great ground spread that could be used well in rock gardens or areas that need coverage. I have fed this a little bit of bloom fertilizer. Otherwise, just needs water and trimming!

didn't make it through the Summer

It's too bad, the little lavender didn't make it through the Summer, not sure why, I bought it for my daughter's garden, so not sure why it died.

              Q & A

              Suggested Companion Plants:

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
