Description
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) 'Hidcote' cultivar.

The Lavenders (Lavandula) are a genus of flowering plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae, native to the Mediterranean region. The genus includes annuals, herbaceous plants, subshrubs, and small shrubs. Lavenders are widely grown in gardens. Flower spikes are used 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 plant is also grown commercially for extraction of lavender oil from the flowers. This oil is used as an antiseptic and for aromatherapy. Lavender flowers yield abundant nectar which yields a high quality honey for beekeepers.

Lavender is also used as a herb, either alone or as an ingredient of herbes de Provence. Flowers are occasionally sold in a blend with black, green, or herbal tea, adding a fresh, relaxing scent and flavour. English lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, yields a highly effective essential oil with very sweet overtones, and can be used in balms, salves, perfumes, cosmetics, and topical applications.
