Enchanting purple flowers
Associated to a delicate, delightful scent and medicinal elements, lavender plants are often sought after across the world. They can flourish in a broad variety of soils and tend to flower between June and August. The perennial plant typically grows between 60-90 centimetres in height with small, tightly grouped leaves which further enhances its appearance. Given its aromatic properties, lavender is not only used as a decorative plant in the garden but also used for producing essential oils.
