There is a time of year when Italian fields and hills are tinged with purple. It is the lavender that blooms and gives unparalleled sensory emotions.
When is it possible to admire the lavender in bloom?
Every year the flowering of lavender varies according to the variety, but also in relation to particular climatic conditions, as well as altitude and latitude. In fact, at higher altitudes, such as in northern Italy where it is obviously colder on average, lavender blooms later.
But we can say that, in general, the lavender bloom extends from mid-June to mid-August.
