A hybrid form of French Lavender, this Lavender is one of the largest species and can reach 1.5m with aromatic soft grey green lobed foliage. During the warmer months tall large deep purple fragrant flower spikes appear. This is a very hardy form of lavender but it can get quite woody, regular pruning will encourage fresh soft growth. Ideal as a hedge, background planting and the dried flowers are very useful as arrangements or pot pourri.
