Lavender produces gray foliage and purple flowers. Most plants are 2 to 3 feet tall but some varieties are shorter. The plants tolerate clipping and grow best in a sunny location in a dryish somewhat infertile soil. Protect the crowns during the winter. Plants are more susceptible to winter injury when grown in wet, heavy soil.

Lavender may be propagated by cuttings or seed. Softwood cuttings can be taken in the spring. Gardeners with a cold frame may take cuttings from side shoots in late summer and fall and root them in the cold frame. The seed germinates in 8 to 12 days at temperatures between 70 and 75 degrees.
