How are broccoli and lavender similar?

1 Answer

  1. Hmmm….they’re both plants. They both grow 2-3 feet tall. They’re both flowering. They both produce flowers that are considered useful by humans.

    Beyond that, I can think of more differences than similarities.

    Lavender is a perennial. Broccoli is an annual.

    Lavender is grown for it’s beauty and frangrance, broccoli for food.

    Lavender has flowers that are light purple (well, lavender-colored), broccoli is yellow flowered.

    Lavender is harvested at various degrees of flowering Broccoli is harvested when the flower is still in a tight bud. Once the flowers open, it’s not useful anymore (except to grow seed to save for next year’s crop).
