Lavender (Lavendula)

Plants we like:
Lavender (Lavendula)

There are many varieties that do well in our climate, but we seem drawn to the usual suspects – namely, English Lavender (Augustifolia) and Spanish Lavender (Stoechas). Both are hardy, sun loving and wonderfully fragrant. We especially love them lining a pathway or greeting us along a fence border or entryway. With the right mix, you can have lavender blooms all year round in our mild maritime climate.
