Lavandula 'Melissa' is a lovely lavender that was named by Oregon grower Andy van Hevelingen for his wife Melissa. It is nicely upright and compact with gray green leaves. Of interest is the way the corollas age from white to pink giving the whole plant a pink glow when in bloom. The flowers are very sweetly fragrant. It blooms early and the flowers persist for a long time.

June to July.  27 in. x 3 ft.

White to Pink flowers

Sun     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8
This is a cultivar of Lavandula angustifolia. Lavenders need full sun and very good drainage. Because of our rainy winters, we amend our soil with 1/4 ten gravel and top dress with the same to keep plant stems and foliage from resting on wet soil.
