If you have ever been lucky enough to drive through the French countryside, then you may have seen Province Lavender along with many other fragrant varieties. Province is a very popular variety with it’s silvery foliage and light purple flowers. The scent will last longer on this variety than some of it’s counterparts. Other varieties of Lavender have a tendency to get brown down in the foliage if there isn’t proper air circulation so give them some room to breathe. Province seems to be less likely to have this problem. It is a perennial in Zones 5 to 10 but it is not recommended to plant in the fall in Zone 6 and colder. Plant in the spring to let it get established.
