Lavender is a fragrant, flowering shrub that grows upwards of three feet in height and can grow outwards up to four feet when space allows. Its stems are woody, with leaf stalks more malleable – the leaves growing in pairs opposite each other along the stalk. Lavender’s soft-textured, grey-green or silver-green leaves are long and needle-like, becoming a true green when mature. Lavender flowers range in colour from a pale, bluish-purple to a deep indigo blue depending on the variety. The scent of Lavender is sweet, floral and citrusy, and is said to have hints of balsamic and eucalyptus.
