If I had to choose one plant that LOVES it the best up here at 7,000 feet, it would be lavender. Every year my plants get larger and larger and ever more happy and beautiful!
They are just coming out now in all of their glory with my different colored yarrow plants!
And they mix so well with many different types of flowers and plants.
Lavender was one of the first plants I planted, before I even had a garden going south of our home.
This is my first plant in October of 2018. I have found that is smells wonderful and absolutely no critters are anxious to take a bite of it 🙂
This is that plant today!
It seems that there is a new lavender farm in our county called Spanish Peaks Lavender Farm, 10 miles northwest of Walsenburg, off County Road 521. I’ve contacted them for more information about their operation and I’ll get back to you with more if they answer me.
In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about choosing the right lavender plants for your high country garden, please go here!
