Lavender plants are herbaceous or shrubs of the genus Lavandula. These plants originate from the Mediterranean, Middle East and India. They grow very well in a wide range of climates and optimally at temperatures between 7oC and 12oC (44.6-69.8 F). They require bright sunlight and regular watering for adequate growth.
The plants are small, branching and spreading shrubs with grey-green leaves and long flowering shoots. The leaves can be simple or pinnate measuring 30-50 mm in length. The plant produces lilac or blue flower on shoots which can be 20-40 cm long. The plants grow to 0.4m (1.3 ft) in height and live for 20 – 30 years.
Lavender flowers can be used in cooking as a herb or to produce lavender sugar. Fresh flower can be used as a flavoring in desserts and sauces. Lavender is also cultivated as an ornamental plant or for the extraction of an essential oil. The flower shoots are dried and used in flower arranging.
