Lavender are sun-loving plants that will be happy planted in any sunny location in a garden. They will also enjoy some partial shade in the afternoon. They will thrive in average to dry humus-rich soil that is well-drained. They develop a deep root system that gives them the ability to look for moisture on their own.
