Lavender is a drought tolerant plant that attracts both pollinators and attention, but getting the right lavender plant in the right place in Texas can be challenging. Texas A&M Agrilife Extension agents trialed thirteen different cultivars in several locations around the state in 2022 and 2023. We have thoughts, photos, and data to share.
Attendees will learn: Lavenders that Lived and where they did it. Best lavenders for flower production and what to do with lavender flowers. Best lavenders for foliage quality and how to use them in the landscape.
