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.

I bought two of these Spring 2016 for a condominium community herb garden. One of the plants failed almost immediately. But the other one has just exploded!! In just 15 months, it has grown at an amazing rate. Last summer, it bloomed twice. It survived a brutal winter up here in Washington State near the Canadian border. This spring, it just keeps filling out and is in full bloom on June 24. Great spread - will have to move this in the fall to a spot where it can just keep going! Picture includes a 12" ruler to display the height. This is the shortest lavender I've ever seen (thus its name), but this is hardly a small plant. It has a great ground spread that could be used well in rock gardens or areas that need coverage. I have fed this a little bit of bloom fertilizer. Otherwise, just needs water and trimming!

didn't make it through the Summer
from Denver, Co.
It's too bad, the little lavender didn't make it through the Summer, not sure why, I bought it for my daughter's garden, so not sure why it died.

Planted this in 86303 at 5700 ft elevation in the woods. As it is a vacation house, plants are not tended for long periods and subject to marauding javelina. This plant has flourished!

This dwarf lavender was a slow starter, but ended up the season a real show stopper. It is very fragrant and held up well in my heavy clay soil.

Tiny but Mighty

Lovely little plant, very fragrant and long flowering. I am going to winter it over in the pot that I have grown it in all summer. Hope it fares well.
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.
