Once your lavender plant has had one year to establish itself, you will need to prune your lavender once a year. The best time to prune lavender is in the spring just as the new growth is starting to come in. The next step for trimming lavender is to prune off 1/3 of the plant. This will force the lavender to create new and more growth, which will not only keep the lavender bush from going woody, but will also help to increase the amount of lavender available for harvest later in the season.
I found this pin & was surprised the types of flowers weren't identified: Sweet Potato Vine (lg. green leaves, center), Calibrachoa (Million Bells Terra Cotta), Bacopa (white), & not sure about the purple flower, but you could use the Pincushion flower (its similar). All can be planted in the Midwest in the summer.
