Few plants are as strongly identified by their fragrance and color as Lavender. Lavandula (botanical name) is native to the Mediterranean region. These plants are noted for their flower colors that can be lavender, purple, pink, or white. Their silvery-green foliage, upright flower spikes, and compact, shrub-like form make them an ideal informal hedge. These evergreen shrubs are ideal for the countryside or to add vibrant color to any urban garden. We can also plant them to create an aromatic border along a path. We recommend planting them someplace where you can enjoy the aromatic flowers!
Lavender plants prefer to grow in a location with full sun exposure and good air circulation. Once established, they have little to moderate watering needs. Do not overwater these plants. These are also very low-maintenance plants with minimal pruning requirements.
Some people like to plant Lavender near patios and porches. They act as a natural pest repellent! People all over the world rave about the aromatic flowers. Insects are a different story. Their scent has been known to deter mosquitoes, flies, fleas, and other annoying insects! And, while they may repel problem insects, they can attract beautiful butterflies to your garden!
Planting Lavender in the landscape is a great way to add lots of color with the bonus of a pleasing fragrance. Allow our landscape design specialists to help you create a beautiful new yard.
