Bees and butterflies love Lavender as we do too, and if blue does not fit in with your planting scheme why not plant white or pink? Create romantic walkways or plant alongside a bench, the fragrance enhances well-being and you will be fascinated watching your winged friends busily gathering nectar all summer long.
Also known as English Lavender, but actually originating from the Mediterranean, Lavender love dry sun baked soils. Attractive to bees, drought tolerant, excellent as dried flowers and happy in borders and containers. Prefers well-drained soil in sun. Hardy perennial.
