You can usually smell it before you even see it: lavender! It’s a smell everyone loves. In fact, people were so crazy about lavender that when the washing machine was first invented, the demand for laundry detergent that smelled like lavender was so overwhelming that all the lavender was picked from the fields.
The scent reminds us of Mediterranean summers and has a calming effect, turning every garden into a zen paradise. Butterflies love the nectar of these purple flowers, and mosquitoes despise the scent. Perfect match if you ask us. Power to the purple plant!
