Lavender is a must-have plant for any flower garden. If you've struggled to grow and are wondering if it's perennial or an annual, there's a few things you should know to get the most out of the flowers.
First, lavender is a perennial that will come back every year with the proper care.
Perennial plants are those that have a life cycle lasting for more than two years.
Unlike annuals which complete their life cycle in a single growing season and biennials which require two growing seasons, perennials have the ability to regrow and bloom year after year.
Lavender plants fall into the category of perennial herbs. With proper care and suitable growing conditions, they can live for several years, bringing beauty and fragrance to your garden year after year.
However, its lifespan can be influenced by various factors such as climate, soil conditions, care practices, and the specific variety you grow.
So if you haven't found success getting lavender to return the following year, consider whether it is located in full sun planted in well draining soil.
Lavender plants need full sun and drier conditions once established.
