Great Mediterranean Garden Plants
The typical Mediterranean garden takes advantage of the outdoor living space within the Mediterranean lifestyle. One of the most important aspects in creating Mediterranean garden is Mediterranean garden plants. There are several options of Mediterranean garden plants. One example is lavender. The familiar aromatic flower, lavender, is native to Southern Europe and Mediterranean countries such as Spain and the south of France. It grows fairly tall, like an ornamental grass, reaching around 3 feet in height. The plant’s stalk is a soft gray color with delicate light purple flowers at the tips. Lavender can only endure temperatures down to around the mid-40s. It thrives in well-drained, calcareous soil with moderate acidity, and in full sun. If you begin a robust lavender planting, it may continue to return each year for up to 30 years. The plants may attract bees. The fragile flowers have been used for centuries as perfumes and sachets, as well as for medicinal purposes as stimulants and diuretics.
