Lavender Pyramid Plant Gift
A Living Potpourri Plant Gift
The sweet scent of lavender is timeless. A mainstay of herb gardens, Lavender (Lavandula spp.) naturally grows in a rounded or mounding shape. Our horticulturists have bumped up the design appeal of lavender to match its "scents" appeal by carefully pruning it into a pyramidal shaped topiary. This elegant Lavender Pyramid gift is sure to please many on your list (including yourself), whether they're experienced gardeners or simply lovers of fragrant lavender!
Already Pruned and Easy to Maintain
Put away the pruning shears, because your Lavender Pyramid will arrive perfectly shaped. And you don't have to be a pruning expert to keep it maintained; simply snip here and there as needed, following the lines of the pyramid. The little snippets of trimmings will be the perfect size to place in your potpourri bowl or tuck into fragrant sachets!
A Non-Fussy Plant
Follow these basic care tips to keep your Lavender Pyramid plant in the peak of health:
• Find a sunny spot indoors – the sunnier, the better. If you have a sunroom, that's a perfect location for your Lavender Pyramid. As an option, place your Lavender Pyramid in front of a sunny window that receives direct sun for at least half a day.
• Lavender grow best when the soil is slightly dry. Be careful not to overwater or the plant may struggle.
• Use fertilizer sparingly. You won't need to fertilize it during its first season indoors, and you'll only need to apply a water-soluble fertilizer at the beginning of its growing season in late spring to early summer.
From Indoors to Outside
If you're wondering whether you can plant your Lavender Pyramid outside, the answer is yes! (Check the hardiness zone range to make sure it will grow as a perennial where you live.) If you've enjoyed it indoors during its first winter, our horticulturists recommend waiting until spring to transplant your Lavender Pyramid in the garden. You can continue to shape your plant in a pyramidal shape, or you can let it grow naturally – the choice is yours!
