Everyone knows the pictures of the blue fields of lavender from the bucolic French Provence. But lavender doesn’t only blossom in blue; it can also be violet, light pink, light blue, and bright white. Flower shape and plant form vary as well. Besides that, lavender doesn’t just grow in the Mediterranean region; it can also be successfully grown in northern regions. So that their kings and queens could drink lavender tea and enjoy the scented soaps and oils they produced, official court gardeners introduced lavender to English castle gardens centuries ago.
