Just got a lavender lady and need some advice from hot climate experts. I've read through all the info I can find and am still not sure if full sun planting is appropriate where I live - too hot? Also, for pot vs. ground planting, temperature drops below freezing maybe a few nights a year and then usually for just a few hours. From all the posts, it sounds like planting this in the ground rather than a pot would be ok here as long as it got protection over the winter?
We have bougainvilla vines that aren't supposed to take the cold, and they've always been fine in the ground - they bloom like crazy even after a winter die back.
So, any advice would be most welcome - ground or pot and full sun vs. part shade. Thanks in advance!
