Netherlands (Zone 8b) wrote:

Lavandula 'Silver Frost' is probably a hybrid lavender..(Lavandin). Well-drained soils are just more a must for it, particularly in winter. It prefers a light, sandy, alkaline soil with somewhat low fertility. Prune to shape in spring after new leaves appears. Not reliably winter hardy in zone 5 where it appreciates a sheltered location where it can have protection against winter cold and winter wetness. This hybrid does not produce seeds.
