Depending geographically where you live will dictate which species and or cultivars will grow well for you. Lavendula angustifolia cultivars perform well in zones 4b to 7 if you live in a warmer part of the country consider Lavendula stoechas commonly called Spanish lavender. Both species prefer a well drained, slightly alkaline soil, feed modestly with a low nitrogen fertilizer and shear heavily after blooming to encourage strong basal shoot development. Hope this helps

Thanks, I'm in far northern California at about 3,000 feet elevation. I'll check out my zone.
