Lavender is a well-known and fragrant plant with gray-green foliage, upright flower spikes, and compact shrub form. It makes a stunning addition to borders and perennial gardens, providing sweeping drifts of color from early summer into fall. These fragrant flowers will bring both beauty and butterflies into your garden.
Growing lavender is a great choice for hot and dry climates, but it also works for containers that can be brought indoors. Find a spot with full sun for your lavender plants or consider growing them in containers; these plants take well to pots. Make sure the soil is light and drains well. Your lavender will not need a lot of water and will tolerate droughts well.
