Lavender Hill

The bounteous lavender plant (Latin: Lavandula) is a genus of 39 species of flowering plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae. In Southern Spain and here in Mallorca the plant grows wild as the Lavandula dentata species, better known by the English common name of French lavender. The Catalan name is Gal·landa or Lavanda; the name in Castellan is Alhucema rizada or Lavanda.

You can find Spanish lavender when out on a hike in its natural habitat in low woodland or Garrigues shrubland. The plant is in flower now, from January to May. I don’t imagine that the plant is protected. It grows rather free and loose.

The photo was taken near Santanyí, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: March 14th, 2012. The time was 16:55:10.
