Lavandula 'Grosso' is the #1 most used lavender in the world-wide production of lavandin. The long spikes make it easy to harvest. The home-gardener will find it excellent for making lavender wands and for use in potpourris. The dark purple calyces and violet corollas make for richly colored flower spikes. The foliage has a very camphorous aroma.

July to August.  3 ft. x 3 ft.

Violet flowers

Sun     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
This is a Lavandula x intermedia form obtained by crossing L. angustifolia ssp. angustifolia and L. latifolia. Lavenders need full sun and very good drainage. Because of our rainy winters, we amend our soil with 1/4 ten gravel and top dress with the same to keep plant stems and foliage from resting on wet soil.
