Lavender is a drought-tolerant perennial that loves hot, sunny locations with dry soil. But doesn’t do well with humidity.
It forms dense clumps of blue-green foliage and blooms with lovely blue/purple, fragrant flower spikes in early to mid summer
Lavender can take a year or two to get going. But once it has, it really doesn’t take any work at all.
Shear off the flowers when it is finished blooming to keep the plant tidy.
But be careful about trimming it back in the spring…cutting into the woody stem can kill it.
