If I Had To Choose

I grow almost every kind of lavender available somewhere in my gardens. I love them all, but if I had to choose only one to grow it would most likely be Spanish Lavender. It blooms early in spring and puts on a colorful show for a good month or two. After a cut back it will bloom again, although not as intense, in the summer. The color is heavenly and the bees adore it. I just hope I never have to choose!

I would love to be able to grow lavender, but haven't found one that grows here in our hot, humid weather. How wonderful that you can grow several varieties.

How beautiful. I love Spanish Lavender and have been tempted to try to stretch my zone 5b zone to zone 6 and try it. It sure looks like it would be worth a shot to try it as beautiful as yours looks.

I did choose, and the Spanish Lavender won here. I've tried growing a number of different Lavenders over the years, but honestly, in this climate, this one is the star, and except for trimming it, it almost thrives on neglect.

It is beautiful lining your walk way.
