Herb Lavender Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead Strain'

Lavender

Lavender is a perennial herb that can look like a small shrub. If you have a warm, non-windy area that slopes to the south, lavender will thrive especially well. It prefers a light soil in a dry, open, sunny location. Soil that is too rich or full of nutrients will not make a good home for lavender. Flower spikes are used for cooking or for dried flower arrangements. The fragrant, pale purple flowers and flower buds are used in potpourris. Dried and sealed in pouches, they are placed among stored items of clothing to give a fresh fragrance and as a deterrent to moths. The common narrow-leaved variety grows 1-3’ high with straight and slender branches. The leaves are 1½” long, green with smooth or fine down beneath, the margins only slightly revolute. The flowers are produced in terminating, blunt spikes from the young shoots, on long stems. The spikes are composed of rings of flowers. The flowers themselves are very shortly stalked, 3-5 together.
