Hi gmclyde, Welcome! to All Things Plants!


I'm not certain but I'd think English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) would do well in your area.

And, this article is from a few years ago but you might find it interesting reading: http://www.motherearthliving.com/in-the-garden/growing-herbs...

Hi, gmclyde. I grow Lavandula stoechas 'Anouk' and Lavandin (Lavandula x intermedia) 'Provence' - both need well draining soil. Planted a Munstead last year and it struggled. Waiting to see if it comes back
Lavender (Lavandula stoechas 'Anouk')
Lavender (Lavandula x intermedia 'Provence')

If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
