lavender – lavandula

23 Jul

Lavender is one of the few plants that truly like growing in full sun. (Many plants are tagged ‘full sun’ at the nursery, but few thrive in the 100-degree heat we’ve had for several weeks.) The small flowers look like a lavender-colored cloud when viewed from far away and, of course, the scent is heavenly. Clumps of lavender grow larger each year, eventually growing to the size of small shrubs. This one is slightly overshadowed by the pergola nearby and might have to be moved next spring to keep it from growing lopsided.
