Tips For Care

Lavender plants need a full sun location, favoring the morning sun to dry the leaves. Hardy in USDA growing zones 6 through 9, where they can be evergreen in the warmer climates!

Low moisture plants, water just enough to establish new plants, then only provide supplemental moisture in times of extended drought. Best in average fertility and in very well-drained soil is best.

Prune back in early spring to remove winter damage, otherwise Lavender are low maintenance perennials!
