Give lavender plants plenty of space in your garden, walkway, entryway or borders, and they'll reward you with rich fragrance and tall sweeping beauty, as well as their practical uses. Versatile lavender flowers are ideal for dried or fresh cut arrangements, potpourri, even cooking. The hardy lavandula grows in most soils, and richly colored English lavender plants are even drought tolerant.
Add lavender plants to your garden or front yard and turn it into a soothing garden retreat. The sweet fragrance of lavender flowers is one of the most recognized and distinguishable aromas adored around the globe. While the blue lavandula plant is likely the hue you're most familiar with, there are other colorful choices, including vivid pink and red lavender. Choose English lavender plants, and discover the outstanding benefits of this new, easy-to-grow variety that keeps its neat shape without opening up.
Line lavender plants along walkways, or place them near entryways to greet guests. Cut lavender flowers after they bloom in midsummer and dry them for bright and perfumed evergreen perennials that last beyond growing season. Each lavandula will produce a broad mound that reaches from 18 to 24 inches high and stretches 18 to 24 inches across, for ideal fragrant border plants. Compact English lavender plants offer a particularly rich aroma and deep color.
