You can add in some pollinating plants to your patio to attract butterflies and bees and lavender is one of the best. The bright purple will add in a pretty pop of color and you will love the calming presence that the lavender creates. Once the lavender has bloomed, you can use it throughout your home for aromatherapy. It will thrive on your patio and it is pretty low maintenance once it has been established. If you have pets, you will want to be sure they stay away from the plants though, as it can be toxic to both dogs and cats. Lavender will be a fragrant option to add to your patio garden.
