This lavender botanical drawing is a giclee reproduction from an original German hand-colored lithograph from Diederich von Schlechtendal's German Flora (Flora von Deutschland), published by Jena, in 1871, and depicts the different elements of the lavandula officinalis chaix , or True lavender, or English lavender.
This floral print is one of many in a series we offer and makes an excellent choice for your home or office, or, as a gift for any gardening, or flower enthusiast.
We offer this print as a fine art giclee print in many different sizes, professionally framed, or as a gallery wrapped canvas print.
I also offer the perfect completely archival framing solution for this print, which you can see at the link below (frame must be purchased separately).
If you purchase any print in my shop, and any of my frames, I will professionally mount them for you before shipping, and it's ready to hang when it arrives on your doorstep.

ABOUT THE BOTANIST
Diederich Franz Leonahard von Schlechtendal was a German botanist and who lived from November 27, 1794 to October 12, 1866. He studied in Berlin, in 1819 becoming curator of the Royal Herbarium. He was a professor of botany and director of the Botanical Gardens at the Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg from 1833 until his death in 1866.
He was editor of the botanical journal "Linnaea" (from 1826), and with Hugo von Mohl (1805-1872), was publisher of the Botanischen Zeitung (from 1843). He conducted important investigations of the then largely unknown flora of Mexico, carried out in conjunction with Adelbert von Chamisso (1781-1838), and based on specimens collected by Christian Julius Wilhelm Schiede (1798-1836) and Ferdinand Deppe (1794-1861). The standard botanical abbreviation "Schltdl." is applied to species he described.
OUR GICLEE PRINTS
Your lavender botanical drawing print will be created using archival, fade-resistant, pigment inks, heavyweight, museum-quality paper and a 11-color process fine-art printer to ensure the most vivid, detailed and long-lasting print. To prevent fading, as with all prints, please never expose them to direct sunlight. To protect your investment, we recommend that you mat and frame your prints.
There is no mat or frame included with this print unless you purchase it separately.
The lavender botanical illustration print you will receive will measure exactly the dimensions you ordered, unless you request a custom size.
All of our prints are carefully positioned with an eighth inch white border on all sides for matting and framing adjustments, although this may vary slightly based on the size of print you order and the size of the original image. If you would like a different size border, or need to know the exact border size, or a borderless print, just let me know w when you place your order.
MATTING & FRAMING TIPS
Select the PRINT SIZE for your needs, then add the mat dimensions to the print size to determine what your final frame size should be. When you plan to mat a print, the rule of thumb is to order your PRINT SIZE one size smaller than your frame size--this allows for the addition of the mat of your choosing. For a statement wall, bigger is better, both with the print size, and the frame size.
