There is something so romantic about the scent of lavender on a hot summer’s night. Lavandula angustifolia, commonly called English Lavender (though native to the Mediterranean region), is a semi-evergreen herb with a sweet, earthy scent that herbalists claim promotes relaxation. Lavender’s blue-gray-green leaves and cool purple spikes of flowers add beautiful pastel shades to the garden or planters.

This plant does best in well-draining, sunny conditions and actually prefers nutrient-lean, sandy soil over rich, loamy soil. Lavender blooms in mid-summer and often will produce a second showing of blooms if the first is cut back once the flowers have died back.


  • Two bloom periods if cut back
  • Wonderful, herbal scented fragrant foliage
  • Thrives in full sun and poor soil
  • Flower stalks dry well for indoor fragrance


  • Hates humidity and persistent moisture!
  • Is semi-evergreen but not extremely cold-tolerant, so may not survive the harshest winters

Limited Availability

We try very hard to source exactly what you’d like, but sometimes growers run out of plants! While this variety is a great deal at the price shown, we know that it has limited availability. If you want the plant even if it might be more expensive, or in a different size or quantity -- after you place your order, just send us a quick note at help@northshoreplantclub.com. Then, we’ll try to get you some version of this from one of our growers. And if we can’t get it from anywhere, of course, we’ll send a refund!

Field-Grown vs. Greenhouse-Grown Plants

Plants which are well-adapted to our local climate are most often field-grown (outside). Field-grown plants are generally cheaper and have the advantage of already somewhat acclimated to our cold winters, but that means they’re not artificially far along in the spring and tend to bloom at the normal time in our area.

Spring annuals and tender perennials are typically grown in Greenhouses so they can be ready and luxurious exactly when customers want them. Some perennials are also “forced” into early bloom in greenhouses. In May, there can be a very big difference between field-grown and greenhouse-grown plants of the same type. The latter typically look good right away (so they’re a great choice where that’s important), but we typically pay a premium for it.

About Ordering From The Plant Club

To secure the best prices for club members and make sure we know the current plants available from each nursery, we take orders only a couple of times a month.

The next order is coming up soon. Here's a link to our ordering calendar. Shoot us an email at help@northshoreplantclub.com, and we'll be happy to talk about plants or let you know when it's time to buy them!

No Pricing or Availability Right Now

We order from a rotating cast of the best nurseries in the Great Lakes region. It looks like we've offered this plant in the past, but the nurseries we're working with this week don't appear to have it in stock at the moment.

Our goal is to bring as many plants together under "one roof" as possible, so we'll try hard to make it available again in the future!
