Design IdeasThis hybrid Lavender makes an informal heat-loving perennial to fill borders or a dense edging plant. Also works well as a short hedge either left natural or sheared, which releases its fragrance even when out of bloom. Resistant to heat and some drought, Lavender is perfect for rock gardens, with Western natives or in drought-resistant plantings.
