Grosso Lavender (Lavandula x intermedia)
Grosso Lavender is not only quite lovely, but also one of the most fragrant of all lavenders. Its magnificently bountiful bloom wands put on a show throughout summer, and exceptional character with its swooping growth habit. We love this special lavender, and so to the butterflies and bees! It is a great choice for herb gardens, rock gardens, borders, and beds.
Easy to grow, Grosso is drought tolerant, heat tolerant, and dry soil tolerant once established, and it is deer and rabbit resistant. These herbaceous perennials like full sun and require well-draining soil. It grows to around 3' tall x 3' wide. Hardy to -20°F when protected from windchill.
