Does English lavender bloom all summer?
Then, which lavender blooms the longest?
A: Two of the longest blooming kinds of lavender are Lavandula angustifolia 'Irene Doyle' and the hybrid L. 'Goodwin Creek Grey. ' The best way to have lavender blooming all summer is to plant several different kinds that bloom sequentially.
Additionally, how do I keep my lavender blooming? Keep lavender foliage as dry as possible. Position the lavender plants with plenty of space between them to encourage drying air circulation. Remove, or deadhead, spent blooms regularly for the entire blooming season. This prolongs the overall blooming duration and promotes bushier growth.
Consequently, does lavender bloom more than once a year?
Lavandula angustifolia English lavender blooms in late spring to early summer, so if it's pruned lightly just after its first flowering, it will likely flower again in late summer. After this second flowering, a full pruning—in late August—will prepare it for winter and encourage more blooms in spring.
