Last spring I bought two types of lavender plants from a nursery here in
Montreal -- Lavendula angustifolia 'Hidcote' and Goodwin Creek. They both
thrived over the summer, doubling in size and flowering.
However, this spring, it appears that only one of the two types survived the
winter. The Goodwin Creek doesn't appear to be alive -- there is no green
growth at all on it -- whereas the other looks tired after the snow and
cold, but still has green.
Does lavender of this kind (the leaves are grayish and fragrant) survive
Quebec winters? I'm surprised that it would be sold as a perennial here if
it can't survive.
