Sugarberry Ruffles Lavender
More heat and humidity tolerant than others.
The plant forms a tight, compact mounding habit of aromatic grey-green foliage. It's attractive to bees and butterflies and has shown itself to be drought tolerant once established as well as to be more heat and humidity tolerant than previous cultivars. It reaches a height of around 24 inches and spreads to about 32 inches.
Easy to grow in very well-drained soil receiving full sunshine, Lavender is a plant that prefers dryish soil and sandy rather than heavy conditions. If you do not have this type of soil, begin with a pot of Lavender on the patio or porch. Before long you will find yourself amending the soil so that you can grow this wonderful perennial in the garden! Such color and fragrance are simply too good to bypass. Zones 8-9.
