Botanical Pronunciationla-VAN-dew-la in-ter-MEE-dee-uh
LoreThis lavender hybrid has the lovely tall spikes of its English lavender parentage (L. latifolia), with the added advantage of better heat tolerance from its Portuguese lavender parentage (L. latifolia). It is more adaptable to a wider range of soils, and although it thrives in nutrient poor, loose soils of an alkaline nature, it will tolerate acidic soils much better than many other lavenders.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; reaches 1 1/2 to 3 ft. tall, 3 to 4 1/2 ft. wide.
