Refreshing, clean aroma. Lavender offers a lovely combination of silvery-gray foliage with blooms in a range of violet shades. Popular for herbal crafts and dried arrangements. Lavender prefers well-drained, somewhat gravelly soil, and suffers in wet, humid climates. As a medicinal herb, lavender is calming to the nerves. The scent of lavender is said to help relieve headaches and nausea and the essential oil is antibacterial and antiseptic. We offer traditional English lavender, which flowers in its second year, as well as Ellagance lavender, which flowers in the first year.
