lovely lavender: any tips for making it thrive in the south?
When it comes to landscaping, I tend to stick with what has proven successful in the past: plants, flowers and perennials that are drought-resistant, low maintenance and high drama. These have worked so well for me in the past that I haven’t been all that open to branching out and trying new varieties of plants. But I couldn’t help myself last week as I was running in to Lowe’s and got a whiff of the overwhelming scent of lavender – I grabbed as many little pots as I could carry without hesitating, even though I have no idea how to make them thrive; their color is as beautiful as their smell is intoxicating and I think it looks especially beautiful paired with boxwoods. Any tips or suggestions for planting? Besides lots of sun and good drainage, is there anything else I should try? Do they do better in pots or in beds? Here are some lovely images that have me hoping I can keep mine alive!
