The Q&A Archives: Maiden Grass and Lavender

Question: Hi there,
I live in Idaho (Boise area) and will have a few Oranmental Grasses planted (gracillimus-Maiden Grass and some lavender planted in May)are these good plants for landscaping and minimal care??? Thank you....Terri

Answer: Both should be planted in well draining soil and both will take summer heat. If you prune your lavender back a little when it has finished blooming it will remain thick and lush. If you don't prune, it will get leggy after a few years in the garden. Aside from trimming it back, it should grow without too much care. Enjoy your landscape
