I've had varied success growing lavender here in northwest Ohio, zone 5b, but this particular cultivar is thriving for me, three years after I first planted it. I've seen it listed as hardy to zone 5 and my experience is that it is indeed hardier than the zone 6 listed here.

Neutral Baa On Aug 8, 2002, Baa wrote:

A compact cultivar with pale pink flowers. It makes an excellent edging plant as it's a much smaller plant than the species. The leaves are a greyish green but not quite as silvery as some other cultivars.

The seedlings are unlikely to look like the parent.
