Lavandula x intermedia / Grosso
Lavandin is a hybrid of two lavenders: one that grew high on the mountain (‘true’ lavender, Lavandula angustifolia) and one that grew low on the mountain (spike lavender, Lavandula spica/latifolia). They met in the middle to produce a wild and sweet, camphoracious-lavender scent that is high yielding and hardy. Lavandin does all that a good lavender should - plus it opens the breath. True lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is also available.
