Lavandula, commonly known as English Lavender, is a small, fragrant evergreen shrub that is known for its beautifully aromatic, dense spikes of purple flowers in mid-to-late Summer. These sweet-smelling blooms will attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators. The drought-tolerant, easy to care for plant flaunts narrow, grey-green leaves as a flattering backdrop for pale violet blossoms.

Not only is lavender a wonderfully smelling addition to your garden, but it also serves many other purposes. Bees that feast on the pollen-rich blossoms will go on to produce lavender honey. In a culinary sense, its flowers can be used to add a sweet & floral touch to baked goods and ice creams, or as drink and food garnish.

If you are concerned about the strong flavour overpowering your dish, consider pairing it with something bright like lemon juice or zest to cut through the rich, low notes.

Lavender can also be used to infuse simple syrups to sweeten lemonade, iced tea or even meringue. Ever so versatile, it is a popular ingredient in aromatherapy for its relaxing scent, and is often used for essential oils, perfumes and more. You can also use it to create homemade potpourri to hang up in your wardrobe to deter moths.

The bush is trained into a standard shape, featuring a unified stem and a bushy top – also called the ‘lollipop’ shape for its visual appearance.
