LoreThe lavenders have been grown in Europe long before Linnaeus' time and he named both this genus and species. Lavandula is derived from the Latin verb lavo or lavandus - to wash, because the Romans used it extensively in their ablutions. French lavender is not native to France, but hot, dry Spain, Greece and North Africa. Its common name is derived merely from the region where it is grown commercially, Province, France. The plants originally classified as L. spica and L. vera are now collectively grouped under L. angustifolia. The species and well over fifty cultivars are considered the most cold hardy and produce what many say is the sweetest of all lavender oils.
Average Size at MaturityModerate growing; reaches 14 to 20 in. tall, 10 to 12 in. wide.
Bloom TimeSummer
Design IdeasA superior plant for hot, dry slopes and banks. Rugged enough for rock gardens in warm climates and natural rocky outcroppings where it is likely to naturalize. Exceptional component of Mediterranean style gardens both formal and casual. With similar requirements as western natives, it is suitable for xeriscape or wild gardens in dry climates. Suited to traditional mixed borders with perennials and flowering shrubs. Performs in large artistic pots and particularly beautiful in classical style with antique finish.
