A truly phenomenal new lavender! Has all the beauty and all the brawn of the best -- in one plant! It has the beautiful long flower spikes typical of hybrid lavandins but also it is hardier than the toughest of the English varieties. Across Europe and the United States this lavender outperformed all other varieties tested. It is tolerant to extreme heat and humidity, and is resistant to common root and foliar diseases. Its silvery foliage and uniform, mounding habit, makes it an excellent choice for ornamental use in gardens, for fragrance, for fresh and dried arrangements, and for oil production. It is also said to be deer-proof. Ht. 60-80cm/24-32"|
