Lavandula angustifolia, the common lavender, will grow in NC if you provide excellent soil drainage. Some gardeners plant them in containers filled with cactus mix potting soil and then sink the containers into the ground. Or, you can amend the soil with cactus mix and plant your lavender on slight mounds. Do whatever it takes to keep the root system more dry than wet and you should be successful. Hope so! (the same planting techniques apply to Lupines)
