Lavender is a fragrant, flowering shrub that grows upwards of three feet in height and can grow outwards up to four feet when space allows. Its stems are woody, with leaf stalks more malleable. The leaves grow in pairs opposite each other along the stalk. Lavender’s soft-textured, grey-green or silver-green leaves are long and needle-like, becoming a true green when mature. During the summer months, small flowers bloom in spikes at the top of tall stems, rising above the fragrant foliage. Lavender flowers range in color from a pale, bluish-purple to a deep indigo blue depending on the variety; some cultivars have pink flowers. The scent of Lavender is sweet, floral and citrusy, and is said to have hints of balsamic and eucalyptus. The fragrance of the leaves and flowers is released when the plant is brushed against or crushed.
Lavender is available during the summer months.
