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.
