Although all lavender (Lavandula) is native to the Mediterranean, there are many varieties offering a vast selection of bloom times, colors, flower forms, and sizes. I like the smell, so it is commonly used in aromatherapy. Contrary to the name, not all lavenders are purple. Some hybrids come in other lovely pastel hues such as violet blue, rose, pale pink, white, and even yellow. The leaves can also vary in shape and color. To extend the bloom season as well as the color palette, consider planting several varieties.A member of the mint family, lavender has been used for centuries as a versatile, unexpected flavoring in both sweet and savory foods.
