I Love Lavender!

Lavender is one of my favorite perennial plants.  It is blooming right now and it's fragrance is like perfume and the bees are going crazy for it!  It's easy to grow here in Utah - it likes our dry climate and high elevation.  Lavender is an excellent choice for a waterwise garden anywhere on the Wasatch Front.  It likes full sun and is not fussy about soil.  In fact, it seems to prefer soil without anything added to it.  Lavender flowers can be harvested and dried and used in various cooking and craft projects.  If you don't have lavender in your garden, plant some today!!
