People who enjoy the fragrance of lavender may not realize how diverse the plants are in size, color, and texture. It's a wonderful idea to have a pot of lavender where passersby can take in the heady fragrance but honestly, some varieties need more leg room after a season or two than a container planter will allow. 'Blue Spear' English lavender may be just the ticket for gardeners who have limited garden space or want to keep lavender on the patio or near an entryway. This variety forms a compact upright mound of blue-green foliage, no more than a foot tall and wide, but has plenty of purple blooms from late spring into summer. The fragrance that humans love is repellent to deer, and in the ground, lavender is drought-tolerant once established. Give lavender lots of sun and well-draining soil for best results.
