A quick trip out today for other items had us returning with 3 small French Lavender plants (Lavandula dentata candicans) for the garden.
Ever since we visited The Lavender Fields in Valley Center, California, Rosanne has been wanting lavender in our garden. (Photos of our visit) I must admit, I am a big fan of lavender, but the shady nature of our garden makes it problematical.
These three plants are a trial. If they survive, we will add as much as she wants and as much as the sun allows. I placed them in the front bed, which probably gets the most sun of any place in the garden. It tends to stay dryer there, as well, which the lavender should like. We shall see what happens.
