Stop by Oak Ridge this weekend - and you’ll find it at a summer festival.

Or visit a few farms here in the Chattanooga area that grow it, year after year.

Lavender is a plant that can be a challenge to cultivate here in the Southeast - but that might also explain why the herb is so popular.

Haley Bartlett is city editor at NOOGAtoday.

Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
