Sweet Lavender

During my holiday last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Ali’i Lavender Garden.  It is located in Maui’s ‘Upcountry’.

This garden, also known as ‘AKL’,  is located on the slopes of Haleakala.

A very beautiful and serene setting saturated in the luscious scent of lavender.

Gazebos and benches beckon one to a place of peace and calm.  The temperature is just perfect at this altitude on Maui.

This garden grows many varieties of lavender.  I didn’t realize there are so many kinds.

One variety grown here is Sweet Lavender.

These beautiful handmade wooden signs help to identify the lavender types throughout the garden.

I learned Sweet Lavender is known as a tropical lavender because it will not survive in temperatures below 32 degrees F.

Sweet Lavender is used for crafting and dried arrangements.   Above is a picture I took inside their Gift Shop.
