Answer: Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote' has rich purple flowers on 10"-15" long spikes, and a compact growth habit, making it one of the best lavenders for container growing. All lavenders thrive in full sunshine, in fast-draining soil that's kept on the dry side. It sounds as though you're overwatering your lavender! Wait until the soil dries out completely before watering. Test by picking up the container. If it's light, you can water. If it's heavy, it has plenty of moisture. Wait a few days and test again. Then water thoroughly by immersing the pot in a bucket or pan of water. By reducing the amount of water your plant receives you'll help it regain its health and it should recover completely.
Good luck with your plant!
