Lavandula x intermedia 'Provence'

Lavender
  • Lavender 'Provence' is an ornamental herb in our One Earth program.

Traditional French lavender with large flower heads and intense scent, this lavender will tolerate wet soils a bit better than most lavenders.

Lavender finds a place in every garden providing that fresh, clear scent that soothes the mind and soul. Be sure to cut the flowering stalks for crafts, potpourri, arrangements, teas and vinegars. It is one of the finest herbs for use in the bath and sachets.

Prefers well-drained, somewhat gravelly soil and will struggle a bit in wet, soggy soil.
