Lavandula × intermedia 'Grosso', commonly known as Lavandin 'Grosso', is a popular hybrid lavender plant renowned for its prolific flowering and aromatic properties. This robust perennial is a cross between Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula latifolia, combining the best traits of both parent species.

Lavandin 'Grosso' is particularly valued for its vigorous growth and abundant blooms. It typically reaches a height of 60-90 cm (24-36 inches) and spreads to about the same width. The plant forms a dense, rounded mound of silvery-green foliage, which remains evergreen in mild climates, adding year-round interest to the garden.

The flower spikes of 'Grosso' are long and slender, rising well above the foliage on sturdy stems. Blooming from mid to late summer, the spikes are densely packed with fragrant, deep violet-blue flowers. These flowers are not only visually striking but also highly attractive to pollinators, including bees and butterflies.

One of the standout features of Lavandin 'Grosso' is its strong, sweet fragrance, which is more intense than that of English lavender. This makes it a favourite for use in the production of essential oils, potpourris, and sachets. The plant's robust nature and high oil content have made it a staple in commercial lavender fields.

'Grosso' thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. It is highly drought-tolerant once established, making it an excellent choice for xeriscaping and low-maintenance gardens. The plant also displays good resistance to pests and diseases, further enhancing its appeal.

Pruning is essential to maintain the plant's shape and encourage new growth. It is best done in late summer after flowering or in early spring before new growth begins. With proper care, Lavandin 'Grosso' can provide years of beauty and fragrance in the garden.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
