Winter hardiness of Lavendar with dry winds?
My wife would like to plant lavender in our backyard. I know it grows fine in Oregon (we have picked it at the various u-pick farms around Portland).
How does it stand up to the dry winter winds in Portland? My yard is on a hill and can get bad east winter winds. This is my first year in this home so I don't know if this winter's winds were normal or worse than normal, but it was pretty bad.
The cold dry east winds this year have broken most of my fern's leaves and ripped off evergreen shrubs' leaves.
Will the lavender get dessicated and damaged too? If so, how does it recover?)
