Meerlo Lavender has proven itself to be one of the most heat and humidity tolerant, as well as water-wise, lavenders we have ever grown. This hardy perennial from the Southern Living Plant Collection has brightly variegated green and cream white foliage that produces a charming, fragrant aroma. During the summer, this Lavender produces multitudes of pale purple-blue flowers. After the blooms have faded, Meerlo should be trimmed in order to keep its compact form. This is a perfect plant for container gardening, either as a stand alone or in a mixed container. It also makes a perfect addition to landscapes, flowerbeds, borders, low hedges, or even as a specimen plant. There’s no wrong way to use this versatile evergreen, however we recommend having it near outdoor living areas where the rich aromas can be enjoyed!
Plant your Meerlo Lavender 18 to 20 inches apart for mass plantings or solid borders; Otherwise, space them 4 feet apart for space between plants.
I received my Meerlo Lavender in perfect condition and it is doing quite well. The scent is wonderful. I received my lavender in May and it is now August. It has not flowered as of yet and I really don’t know what to expect from it this season as it hasn’t put on a lot of growth. I have it in a pot because it is lavender after all and I have heavy clay soil. I don’t want to make it miserable and die a slow death.
I love Meerlo. I recommend it.

My lavender plant arrived very dry and partially out of the container. I soaked it but it still wilted. I was so looking forward to it in my yard.

You should not sell on Amazon plants that cannot arrive alive.
Roche, we’re sorry to hear about your poor experience, but you are not alone.
We’ve found that not only this lavender but other lavender are producing a gas when stressed by transit. This gas essentially suffocates the plant in the enclosed box and the only place for the gas to escape is the very small tabs on the left and right. We’re currently testing a few methods on boxes to ensure the safe delivery of this plant in the future and we’ve pulled all inventory until the issue has been resolved.
