A popular plant grown for potpourri, Lavender likes to grow in full sun and well-drained soil. Hardy in zones 6-9, this plant reaches a height of up to 20 inches and a width of up to 24 inches. Bees thoroughly enjoy the pollen of Lavender. Lavender flowers June through August, however, the flowers after July tend to look "tired" during the heat of the summer months. To revive this plant, shear off all the flowers; the plant will resume its natural beauty. Lavender prefers lots of sun but will tolerate a limited amount of shade. Well-drained soil is essential, otherwise the foliage will yellow. This perennial tolerates drought quite well, but water them a bit through really dry periods, preferably not over their foliage. Fertilize sparingly if at all, because these are not particularly hungry plants.Lavender is one of the most famous of all herbs for the fragrance of its dried flowers and the oil distilled from them. Lavender grows best in rocky, dry, sunny places with an abundant amount of lime in the soil. It can be propagated by seed or cuttings. Scent is strongest in dry, sunny locations. Can be used for bonsai.
