Augusta® Lavender (Heliotropium) displays soft lavender purple blooms with a sudden yellow eye. It is extremely heat and humidity tolerant, which means both the deep south and far north can be successful with this plant. The habit is somewhat upright, which creates a mound when planted in the landscape and it will flower over the pot edge when planted in containers. Don't forget the pollinators, this heliotrope will also attract bees and butterflies. It works great in both the landscape and as a combination piece filler.

  • 12-24 inches tall and 12-36 inches wide at maturity
  • Annual except in zones 9-11
  • Plant in part to full sun (4+ hours daily)

Care: This easy care annual will benefit from a dose of Time Release fertilizer at the time of planting in the landscape. This dose of fertilizer will likely be sufficient for the summer season in most landscape plantings. If you are in a very long summer climate, an additional application several months into the season can be helpful.

When planting in containers an application of Time Release fertilizer at planting is also recommended. However, in pots, this fertilizer application won't last as long as it does in landscapes. An additional controlled release fertilizer application after 2-3 months will help the plant maintain vigor and new growth.

Regular applications of Water Soluble fertilizer is also a good option to take the place of the second controlled release plant food application.

If the plant begins to look a bit open or tired, an overall trim can help tidy it and will encourage new growth. Trim lightly if needed, taking no more than 1/4 of the plant. Follow the trim with an application of Water Soluble fertilizer will provide instant energy to help your plant kickstart new growth, branching, and flowering.
