Tips for Growing Lavender
Lavender are sun-loving plants that thrive in hot weather and grow best in arid climates. Lavender plants will be taller and wider in mild winter, hot summer climates. The same varieties when grown in cold (zone 5-6) winter climates tend to be more compact. Lavender plants require two-to-three growing seasons to reach mature size.
These perennials are a superb choice for the drought-resistant garden, doing best in the drier parts of the US like the Great Plains, Intermountain West and West Coast (which has a true Mediterranean climate (wet winters and dry summers). In the Mid-West and Eastern US, sandy soils are a must, and planting on a slope or in a raised bed provides optimum drainage. For the southern US with hot, humid heat, Spanish Lavender (Lavandula stoechas) is the best choice. For large growing Lavender, we recommend French Lavender or hybrid Lavender (Lavandula intermedia) varieties. The key is to make sure you choose a variety with sufficient winter cold hardiness for your region. (‘Vera’ and ‘Pastor’s Pride’ are among the most cold hardy.) Yet with proper soil preparation, and planting site selection, Lavender can also thrive in moister, more humid climates like the Mid-West, East Coast and Mid-Atlantic states. Lavender Phenomenal does particularly well in areas with more moisture and humidity.

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Lavandula angustifolia Sharon Roberts:
I love this lavender. I got three a year ago, and they immediately thrived. Bees love them, they're fragrant, and the color is beautiful. They survived a dry, hot summer and then a record-breaking cold winter (minus 20 for multiple days plus 8-10 feet of snow all together) before coming back looking just fine. I'm waiting for it to be back in stock to order more.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Can not find any faults with this lavender. It is just plain lovely! You can use it many ways. Garden,container,accent plant. It really is a must have lavender.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
