Growing lavender offers various benefits as it is a low-maintenance flower. This plant thrives in sunlight, and its delicate flowers work well in both fresh and dried arrangements. While native to the Mediterranean with a preference for cool winters and hot, dry summers, hardy lavender varieties have been cultivated to withstand colder winters and higher humidity.
For Northern gardeners, choosing cold-tolerant types or opting for container gardening that allows bringing plants indoors during winter is advisable.
