Lavenders do not like to have wet feet or sit in poorly drained soil but they do love the sun. Phenomenal Lavender is beautiful with its grey/green foliage and nicely rounded habit of growth. It will produce its fragrant purple/blue colored flower blooms off spikes in summer and can re-bloom in the fall as well.
