Plump, violet-blue flower spikes fill the air with their sweet fragrance. 'Grosso' is a larger plant. Its long flower stems make this variety especially good for use in bouquets. 

L. 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.

This is a very large, hedging lavender that can be used to create a border around the garden and also can be grown as a cut and dried flower for potpourri and culinary uses. It forms a very uniform, dense mound of silvery green foliage topped with tall wands of rich lavender purple flowers which are much darker than ‘Provence’. 

In the north, this variety blooms from mid through late summer, but it blooms earlier in the south. Two year old plants in  trials measured an impressive 4-4 ½’ across!

Touted as the most silver of any lavender, ‘Silver Mist’ has a ghostly, almost whitish appearance from a distance.  It forms a bushy, very well-branched, uniform clump of fragrant, glaucous silver foliage. 

Beginning in midsummer, a week or two later than other lavenders, it produces perfectly contrasting lavender purple flowers which last for many weeks.  This selection blooms in year two after it has been vernalized and it becomes more floriferous as the years go on. 

‘Silver Mist’ is quite rare in the US so you can be one of the first to have this truly unique English Lavender!

Rich lavender flower spikes fill the air with their sweet, intoxicating fragrance all summer long. Though this cultivar was introduced to the trade in 1916, it remains one of the most popular today. Its compact habit and relatively short stature makes it a good choice for edging. This is often said to be the hardiest variety of all Lavender. It is very similar to 'Hidcote'.
