Lavandula angustifolia

Perennial. Provence Blue lavender has lovely deep blue spikes atop silver foliage. It is an improved "true lavender" type like those grown in southern France. Grow it in borders, rock gardens, large containers, or where you'll most enjoy its intense fragrance as it blooms. Harvest its flowers for dried arrangements and crafts to enjoy throughout the year. Easy to grow, drought tolerant, and attractive to bees and butterflies.
