Sun requirement for lavender: Plant in Full Sun

Lavender has been planted 31 times by Growstuff members.

Lavender has an easily recognizable scent and purple to blue flowers that grow in whorls. Leaf shape varies across the genus. It is a natural repellant of moths, slugs, and deer, and a great companion for any plant that suffers from these pests (such as kale, cabbage, and other members of the Brassicaceae family).
