Very fragrant, award-winning English Lavender ‘Little Lottie’ (also sold as ‘Clarmo’) is a lovely dwarf Lavender with masses of attractive light pink flower spikes. A top choice for planting in your favorite containers or for culinary uses.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society (2002) for its noteworthy qualities.
  • Blooms once in late spring or early summer. Lavenders blooming once may have a second, smaller flush of flowers during the season and maybe a third one if the flowers are cut soon enough.
  • Grows in a bushy shrub, up to 20-24 in. tall (50-60 cm) and 24-30 in. wide (60-75 cm). The foliage of gray-green narrow, small leaves is evergreen in warm winter climates.
  • This Lavender is very versatile and can also be used in perennial borders, rock gardens, or herb gardens. Its fragrant flowers may be dried and used in potpourris. Spectacular effect in mass plantings.
  • Thrives in full sun and performs best in dry to medium, poor, light, sandy, and well-drained soils. Excellent drainage and air circulation are essential, specifically in hot, humid climates.
  • A real magnet for bees and butterflies, this lavender is drought, deer, rabbit, and dry soil tolerant.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses.
  • Trim back in spring to encourage bushier growth. Remove spent blooms to encourage new blooms.

English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), also called True Lavender or Common Lavender, is a type of lavender often associated with the famous purple lavender fields of Provence. Despite its common name, it is not native to England, but to the Mediterranean and counts over 40 different cultivars with flower spikes varying from blue-purple, lavender, violet-blue to white-pink. They create drifts of “cool” colors that sway elegantly in the summer breeze atop a beautifully contrasting gray-green to green-purple foliage of narrow leaves. Growing up to 2-3 ft. tall (60-90 cm), this Lavender type is great for formal or informal edging perennial along walkways, raised walls, and borders; also planted in beds, rock gardens, and in mass plantings. This is also the “queen of herbs” for herb gardens.
