from Northern California
About Me Master Gardener
Comments about Lavandula angustifolia Buena Vista:
Very versatile in No. Calif. Sacramento Valley. Takes high heat areas next to concrete, good in regular garden setting too. Blooms twice a year with light shearing after spring bloom; hasn't gotten woody, remains compact and neat with spring trim. Does well with regular watering. I have it in my home garden, and in front of my business, many compliments on it.Long lived (6 years so far), Super easy and my most favorite lavender ever!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
