What are the pros? Hardy in zone 5b

What are the cons? Needs a year to get going well

Review:

After some initial research, I chose this strain because of its hardiness in my zone. I had read that lavender was difficult to germinate from seed, but I didn't have any trouble, even sitting beside a cold window in the winter time. After starting my plant babies, I realized that I wanted more, so I went to the garden store and bought more of this variety. While I did get some buds the first year, I left them alone to give the plant a chance to grow. In the second year, the ones that I started from seed are the same size if not larger than the plants that I purchased at the garden center. The fragrance of this variety is pleasant, but not overwhelming. I have also used my lavender in various recipes including lavender cupcakes, chamomile lavender scones, lavender simple syrup, and tea. Again, there was a pronounced lavender flavor, but it was not overwhelming. I dried both the buds and the leaves by laying a paper towel in a cool, dark place. It dried beautifully.

Review:

Able to sprout it up against a chilly winter window with little light in a cool bathroom. Seemed to like the the coolness. I was amazed at the how many came up. sprouted pennyroyale next to them with same result. They over wintered for three years so far next to a rock wall facing south.
