Lavender field

This highly aromatic perennial boasts numerous variations in flower color, time of bloom, fragrance and plant height. Give lavender a sunny site and well-drained, neutral soil. Once the plant is established, lavender is drought-tolerant; most types languish in heat and humidity. Giving lavender a haircut after flowering will promote branching and encourage additional blooms.
