Lavandula angustifolia is a woody shrub best known for its beautiful purple-blue flowers and sweet scent. It is native to southern Europe but now widely cultivated around the word, particularly in dry, sunny locales. Its crooked, ranched woody stems can reach twenty-four inches high, and the leaves are grayish-green, narrow and three-fourths to two inches long. The baby-blue flowers, which open from June to September, are small, highly aromatic and produced in whorls at the end of long spikes. Each fresh flower spike yields approximately 0.8-2% essential oil. Due to changes in nomenclature over the years, misnaming of Lavenders continues to plague the marketplace; Lavandula officinalis is now known as Lavandula angustifolia.
