Answer: No matter what the type, all lavenders thrive in growing conditions similar to their native habitat along the Mediterranean coast. They prefer moist, cool winters and hot, dry summers. Well-drained soil and a full day's sun are also essential for robust plants and plentiful blooms. In the humid South, try Spanish lavender or French lavender. Both seem to be more tolerant of the steamy climate. As an extra precaution, make sure your plants are located where they will receive good air circulation. This will cut down on diseases. Enjoy your garden!
