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.
Lavender plants are at their 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). 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.

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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Eastern Shore, Maryland
This particular lavender is a real trooper with spectacular long blooming bracts. I grow many different lavenders but this particular variety gets the most comments and queries from my gardening neighbors. It is hot and humid here on the Eastern shore of Maryland but this lavender seems not to mind at all. I am so delighted with all of your perennial plants, but the lavenders and agastaches are my ultimate favorites.

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.
