Lavandula 'Provence' is a large, vigorous shrub that is always in demand at the nursery. Perhaps that is because of the sweetly intense fragrance of its blooms which continue throughout the summer into the fall. Although there are reports of this suffering winter dieback locally, we grow ours in well-draining soil along our Mediterranean Path and it is very happy.

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.
