One of my favorite plants ever!! I have lavender all over my garden in seperate places. This section under the patio I decided to plant lavender in a group. The varieties are Lavender Angustifolia (English Lavender) & Lavender Dentata (French Lavender). So far the ones in the ground are doing great. It did spread out very fast. The 2 Topiary ones I have here already grew the flowers spikes!!
