Lavandula × intermedia ‘Provence’

Provence Lavender

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.315.300

A type of hybrid Lavender sometimes known as Lavandin, generally flowering in midsummer, a little later than the more common English types. This selection forms a sizeable bushy mound of grey-green foliage, with narrow spikes of light mauve-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. The narrow spikes and strong stems make this a good choice for weaving Lavender wands. Particularly attractive growing beside other Lavender selections with deeper coloured blooms.
