It is the embodiment of the Provence, the longing dream of a Mediterranean summer, the happiness of relaxed moments. Its blue is without compare, turning lavender fields into a meditation carpet of calm and tranquility. As subshrub, lavender can grow to a height of 2 feet. In the flowering period from July to August six to ten small, two-lipped flowers form a spike-like terminal panicule. The narrow leaves, covered with a soft down, are also aromatic. Just run your hands through them and they will release their soothing fragrance.
