Herbaceous, perennial, evergreen plant, native to the Mediterranean basin. It has silvery, very fragrant, narrow and elongated leaves; in summer it produces many flowers, small and fragrant, grouped in spikes. Most of the varieties are cold-resistant and are used in the garden as hedges or to form large bushes. If desired, it can be grown in large pots, bearing in mind that it is a fast-growing plant, which also grows up to one meter and more. The most common varieties are Lavender angustifolia, also called English lavender, very fragrant and with reduced floral ears; Toothed lavender, with light flowers and resinous smell; Woolly lavender, with white leaves covered with hair and very large floral spikes.
It is a rustic plant, which resists the heat of the hottest summer and the cold of the coldest winter, even if in cases of intense and persistent frosts it is good to repair it with non-woven fabric. It particularly likes the sunny and very well-ventilated positions. Being a Mediterranean plant, lavender is particularly resistant in environments characterized by a dry climate and high temperatures.
