As early as the 16th century, the renowned herbalist John Gerard referred to the beneficial properties of ‘French Lavender’. From Portugal to Palestine the slightly stronger essential oil obtained from this Lavender has been valued in folk medicine.
From June to August, plump deep purple flowers with purple bracts (which fade to pink as they mature).
- Well drained soil
- South, west facing
- Full sun
Because this plant is half-hardy it needs to be planted in a sunny, sheltered position away from cold winds and protected from frosts. Cut spent flower heads back to encourage further flowering and strong flower stalks.
Aromatic foliage and strongly scented flowers
