Lavender Flowers (Lavendula angustifolia)
Lavender is a perennial plant native to eastern Europe, northern Africa and the Mediterranean. It has narrow grey-green leaves and long spike with purple flowers that are quite attractive to pollinators. The flowers are covered in star shaped hairs.
Lavender flowers have a fresh, sweet, floral, herb-like aroma. The flowers are harvested when in full bloom, usually being stripped from the flower spike, but sometimes dried on the spike to make lavender flower wands. Lavender flower petals are fused together in a tubular shape and the color of true lavender flowers is a grey-blue.
