Lavender

Lavender is true summer flower which is loved by butterflies and bees, and its evergreen foliage offers year round interest.  Lavender's beautiful blooms are perfect for fresh bouquets brought directly in from the garden.  Lavender is also well know for being dried for flower arrangements or sachets.

Lavender has a few different forms.  There is the English lavender flower and the Spanish lavender flower.  Both unique, the English lavender has a spike of florets on a stem that grows above it's foliage. Spanish lavender is also a spike of flowers, but has a tuft of petals at the top of the flower cluster.  English lavender 'lavendula angustifolia' is a delicious accent to main dishes and pastry recipes.
