Lavender Fields of America book cover

(softcover edition published 2022)

Lavender Fields of America is a stunning pictorial look at the modern, yet ancient, phenomenon of lavender

From Hawaii to the East Coast, the fields of three hundred enterprising American farmers who grow the herb, including authors, Rebecca and Gary Rosenberg, are featured. One no longer has to travel to Provence to experience the majesty of lavender fields in full bloom.

One might think that lavender fields are quite similar, but the farms are influenced by the farmers who plant them, and the land in which they grow. Each farm is a thumbprint, germinating from each farmer's background, personal style, and point-of view. The settings, types of plants and characteristics of the farms vary as much as do Americans.

From harsh winters to draught to rocky soil, these farmers face challenges with the land. They struggle, sometimes fail, and then persevere, gravitating to the beneficial lavender plant. Dedicating their lives to lavender cultivation, and to the production of lavender products, they find the right cultivars and perfect methods of planting and maintenance.

Lavender products have practical uses: relaxation, pain relief, insect repellant, air freshener, antiseptic, and more.

Lavender Fields of America contains dozens of full-color photographs of American lavender fields. Softcover, 8" x 11", 112 pages.
