English Lavender is a sun loving perennial herb plant for growing in zones 5-8 with mid to late spring bloom time.  It is known as a xerophyte which by definition is a plant that has adapted to living in dry climate conditions. Poor soils are not a problem and are in fact preferred over rich moist ones. This makes Lavender perfect for sun drenched planting locations such as a hot dry bank that can be a real landscape problem area and can still withstand cold conditions during fall and winter typical with zone 5.
