We have lavender growing along the side of the path and it grows really well, too well in fact as the flower stems flop all over the path. I did try putting a small fence between the plants and the path but that rather defeats the object of having the lavender as path edging. The flower stalks must have been well over 2 feet higher than the bushy growth this year.
I'd like to replace it with a more compact form if those forms are fully hardy. I've read that some aren't so don't want to go diving in. Any suggestions from people who have had success with compact versions would be appreciated.
