Description

The most aromatic, colorful, densely-branched lavender yet

Days to Maturity: 95

Every garden deserves this lovely French Long Lavender (also known as Spanish) lavender. French Long Lavender is perfect for drying, with very bright two-tone blooms and an intense fragrance you will love. Make French Long Lavender part of the perennial garden or shrub border this season and enjoy it for years to come.

The blooms on French Long Lavender are actually long, violet bracts topped with a few large petals of lavender. This creates a lovely bicolored look that sets French Long Lavender apart from all the English lavenders in the garden. Even the stems are attractive, colored a bright magenta that holds well in the summer sun.

French Long Lavender begins blooming a bit earlier than English varieties, too. Expect the first blooms in late spring or early summer. They last a long time, luring bees and butterflies in for lengthy visits, and their bold color complements the subdued grayish-green tones of the small, neat (and also highly fragrant) leaves.

French Long Lavender reaches about 30 inches high and 20 to 25 inches wide, with dozens of flowering stems all summer. French Long Lavender appreciates an early spring trim to increase its bushiness and replace its rather fragile stems with new growth.

Grow French Long Lavender as you do other lavenders: dry, very well drained soil and plenty of sunshine are the only essentials. Excellent edging a path, fronting the shrub border, or accenting any perennial planting, French Long Lavender might just become your new favorite.

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I don’t normally have much luck keeping lavender in my full sun beds in NC. BUT I grew these from seed a few years ago and every year it’s bigger and more beautiful!
