Lavender Culture

Full sun to partial sun.
Performs best in full sun in an evenly moist, moderately rich, deep, well-drained soil that promotes deep root growth that will assist in Winter hardiness, but is adaptable to various soils and soil pHs.
Can be propagated by vegetative stem cuttings taken in Summer, clump division, or seeds Mint Family, with few disease or pest problems, but Winter dieback and hardiness can be a concern in the colder areas of its range.
Can be used as landscape perennial, but commonly available as a perennial herb, in container form.
Best if sheared back about one-third immediately following the bloom period, with annual thinning of the number of stems on mature, woody plants.
