Each year it spreads to take over that end of the garden. Each fall I gather the lavender and dry it. I place it around my house and in my drawers to keep the house smelling nice. It is a lovely plant and one that I cherish. My grandson was only eight when he planted it. He's always had a green thumb since he was old enough to help in the garden. He seems to have a natural ability for making things grow.
