Lavandula × intermedia ‘Grosso’

Hybrid Lavender

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.315.350

The hybrid Lavenders are sometimes known as Lavandin. They generally flower in midsummer, a little later than the English types. This selection forms a bushy mound of grey-green foliage, with long spikes of dark purple flowers. Choose a location with excellent drainage. In regions with clay soils, a raised bed or rock garden will improve success greatly. Plants should be clipped back by half in spring. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for fresh cutting, this is one of the best Lavender selections for drying. Often repeat blooms in late summer or fall.
