NEW YORK — AUGUST 23: Perennium favorite, Lavender, is the newest addition to the lineup at The New York Botanical Garden, which opens this month.
New product line-up Avicennia (Candelilla) has received an upgrade to include a new herbicide, “Vitamin K-12”, which is a naturally occurring mineral that has been found to protect against many of the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
The plant’s use is now restricted to commercial uses.
The garden has been expanding its offerings with a wide range of new products, from a new line of botanicals that include a fresh line of herbal medicines, including Lavender and Sage, to herbal tea blends and natural remedies.
Avicenna has received a $10 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to expand its research in plant science and health.
The New Yorkers first-ever Lavender Lavender Garden will open July 18, and will be the largest herbicide-free lavender garden in the world.
Avicennias newest addition, Lavendar, is now a $3.6 million, 10-year extension of the garden.

The Lavender Lava is also an herbal tea blend that is available at the Garden, along with herbal tea, herbals, coffee and juice.
The Garden is also adding the largest selection of green tea products in the United States, including a new $10.5 million, 12-year, 30-acre tea garden that will be open July 24.
“We are excited to be adding a second Lavender lavender lavendar garden to our ever expanding offerings of lavender and green tea, and welcome the addition of Lavender to the Avicenas growing list of herbs,” said Julie Cogdell, Garden director of Horticulture.
“The Garden continues to be a top priority for the Garden as we focus on growing the most beautiful plants, herbs and products possible to complement our other plants and gardens.
