Description

Lavender is a familiar fragrance known to us all. Its wonderful lilac and purple flowers with aromatic silver grey-green leaves give much pleasure during flowering. The evergreen leaves can be pruned back after flowering to flower again the following year. In pots, gardens or as a hedge, lavender is a must for all gardeners.
