Can lavender plants grow in Arizona?

I am moving there soon.

You can grow a lavender in Arizona, but you should consider it a winter annual. It is much too hot in Arizona to (reliably) keep a lavender plant alive in the summer months.

You should have no trouble growing lavender in Arizona. It is recommended that you start from cuttings. Starting from seeds takes forever. Growing conditions for lavender: Plant hardiness zones from 5-8 Soil pH 7. 1 (lime) Light well drained soil Full sun Protect from summer and winter winds.

Due to the extreme heat in summer, it is best to plant it where it will get morning sun and afternoon shade. Make sure it is well watered until established.

Of course, this really depends on your Zone, and Arizona spans the zones from 1-6. Many lavenders will do quite well, but you need to consult your zone to see which genus, and whether to grow inside or out. With your great growing conditions, I'm sure you will find one.

Lavender grows well in Arizona. Plant it in well drained sandy soil. You can let the soil dry between watering.
