Design Ideas: This is the woody, blue-purple flowering perennial that makes the French countryside so charming. Grow Lavender as an informal perennial to fill borders or as a dense edging plant. Also works well as a short hedge in knot gardens, where shearing releases its fragrance even when out of bloom. Because it is resistant to heat and some drought, Lavender works well in rock gardens with Western natives or in drought-resistant plantings.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.

History

The powerfully fragrant oils in the foliage and flowers of lavender have made it a favorite herb in every part of Europe, with varieties developed for colder northern climes.
