I think a shorter and sparse arrangement of dried lavender arranged is much better than a large one.

"Blue annual lobelia is so easy to grow. It likes to be watered everyday. Its easy to grow from seed but faster to just go ahead and buy a flat of bedding plants.It goes all summer !" Thanks Kerry & Kaye

Bird and Butterfly Garden

Allium ‘Millenium’ is a versatile perennial for a sunny garden because of its compact upright habit and resistance to all types of pests. It is also drought tolerant and loved by butterflies and bees. Though the fragrant blooms are very attractive in midsummer, the seed heads are the real floral feature. They last for several months, providing interest in the garden until late winter.
