Lavandula intermedia Gros Bleu

Lavandula

Lavender

In the Middle Ages, Lavender was a chief ingredient in the famous “Four Thieves” vinegar, and today no classic sachet or potpourri would be complete without it.

We use Lavenders in every garden we design. Dependable and drought tolerant, their strikingly handsome flowers, whether white or blue, pink, violet or purple, offer a heady aroma and an upright spiky look, while the foliage forms a pleasing mound during the off season. In the herb garden, border or rockery, they combine well with grasses, perennials or other shrubs. If the plants are cut back in late June, many cultivars will produce a second bloom in autumn.

An enormously popular newcomer from Sault, France, this sensational dark flowering enchantress is destined to give ‘Grosso’ a run for its money. Perhaps the deepest colored lavender and an ideal candidate for fresh or dried bouquets, ‘Gros Bleu’ flaunts 4 in. long, slender tapering bloom spikes, described by dark purple woolly calyxes, deeply saturated violet corollas and a scent thatís sweeter than ‘Grosso’s, on exceptionally tall branched stems.

The good-sized robust mound of winsome, densely arranged greenish gray foliage makes a welcome addition to any landscape or commercial Lavender endeavor.

Blooms June – October.

Size: 3'–3-1/2' high x 3' wide. Zone 5/6.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
