Lavandula x intermedia 'Grosso'

Lavandula 'Grosso' English Lavender

Common Name: English Lavender

Plump, violet-blue flower spikes fill the air with their sweet fragrance. 'Grosso' is a cross between Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula latifolia and is a larger plant overall than these species. Its long flower stems make this variety especially good for use in bouquets.

Lavandula x. intermedia tends to bloom a bit later in the summer than other lavenders with a possible repeat bloom towards fall. These hybrids were first developed in France for use in perfumes and essential oils.

Lavender has been grown for centuries for its intensely fragrant flowers and beautiful appearance. It is a staple item of every sunny garden, and its dried flowers are widely used in potpourris and arrangements.
