Lavenders and rosemary grow really well here. I like my lavender hedge.
I wish the montbretia and euphorbia grifithii wouldn't keep dying! And I lost my lovely Headbourne Hybrid Agapanthus 2 winters ago. Had to buy them in England as they don't seem to sell them in Dordogne. Should have brought them in, but they'd got so big and heavy. What one can grow depends so much on the climate. Long, hot, dry summers here and really cold and often very wet winters, also snow.
Earlier this winter I dug out a rampant phygelius. 3 or 4 years ago I dug out a rather nice, but past it's sell by date, blueish juniper and I had a lovely new area for planting!
