Answer: Lavender (Lavandula) is a small shrubby herb widely cultivated for its fragrant flowers and oils. It is many-branched and somewhat woody. It is a perennial that grows from 1 1/2 to 3 feet high. Smaller varieties are available, as are taller ones. The plant thrives best in light and rather dry soils, but will do well almost anywhere. On low or wet land it is more susceptable to winter kill, therefore it is best to mulch it well for winter protection. It grows slowly, and usually does not flower for a year after planting so be patient with it!
