Lavandula intermedia Vera is a small, evergreen lavender, a cross between the English and Portuguese herb. With slender, aromatic, silvery-grey leaves, in high summer it produces long spikes of dusky pale to dark purple flowers

This popular evergreen lavender is a particularly lovely for edging paths and borders, perfuming the air as you walk past. Easy to grow – use in a gravel garden, or clip into a low hedge. For centuries Lavandula has been grown for its sweet aroma, picked just as the flowers come into bloom, they can be dried and used to flavour baking or sewn into muslin bags to scent clothes and the linen cupboard.

The flower spikes are also highly attractive to bees, butterflies and other pollinators.
