Lavandula pedunculata 'Sensation Rose' is a cultivar of lavender that is native to Spain and Portugal. Prefers a warm, dry climate with plenty of sunlight. well-drained, sandy or gravelly soil that is slightly alkaline. It does not like wet soil, so make sure the soil has good drainage. Drought-tolerant and does not like to be overwatered. Water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.
This cultivar does not need much fertilizer. You can apply a balanced fertilizer in the spring, but be careful not to over-fertilize, as this can lead to leggy growth and fewer flowers.
Prune Lavandula pedunculata 'Sensation Rose' in the spring after the last frost. Remove any dead or damaged wood, and shape the plant by cutting back the new growth by about one-third. This will help to promote bushier growth and more flowers.
Prefers a well drained slightly fertile soil. Keep just moist during summer. Mulching will help. Prune back after flowering has finished to encourage further new growth.  Will benefit from feeding twice per year with a complete plant food and liquid fertiliser.
