Lavandular intermedia ‘Grosso’

A wonderful, fully hardy evergreen shrub with grey green foliage and stems reaching 90cm. Suited to a sheltered position in full sun and in well drained soil.

In late summer, highly aromatic, mid-blue flowers open in profusion. The flower spikes are magnets for bees and other nectar loving insects.

Lavandular ‘Grosso’ is a perfect shrub to make an informal hedge, especially along the edges of a path, where the fragrance can be really appreciated.

The stems need to be trimmed after flowering and prune last year’s growth to shape the plant in spring.
