Who doesn’t love lavender? What’s not to love??? It looks great in the yard with delicate pink-to-purple buds, repels mosquitoes, is drought tolerant, and smells great once harvested (or before, after, or anytime in between). Another positive? Lavender is a member of the mint family – a cousin to delicious rosemary, sage, and thyme – making it totally edible and absolutely scrumptious!
