If the fragrance alone isn't enough to convince you to grow French lavender (Lavandula dentata), consider that the plants are drought-tolerant, deer-resistant, and require little maintenance. More delicate in color than English lavender, it is well-suited to drying for crafts and culinary use. French lavender works well in mild, Mediterranean climates in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 8 through 11 where some types bloom most of the year.
