evergreen shrub, up to 1 meter tall, with pale green, narrow linear
leaves and violet blue flowers. The entire plant is covered with oil
glands, which are in the star shaped hairs that cover the plant.
Lavender has been used since ancient times, and the Romans added
lavender to their bath water, hence the name from the Latin lavare, 'to
wash'. Differences in soil, altitude and temperature, precipitation and
seasons contribute to subtle changes in the scent from one lot of
Lavender to another.
