    Lavandula x intermedia 'Provence'

    Lavender 'Provence', a wonderfully fragrant herb, grows quickly and produces buds that are easily removed for potpourri making . This aromatic herb is a Lavadin, or English Lavender Hybrid. As an ornamental herb, it blooms profusely, smells great and grows larger and faster than many others. Considered one of the more "rugged" varieties, 'Provence' is drought tolerant and does not need much water to thrive.

    A wonderfully soothing scent, Provence Lavender is used in many candles, cosmetics, perfumes and Aromatherapy products. This particular variety is named for the Provence region in France, where the majority of Lavender supply and production come from.

    A French Lavender

    Deer resistant and low maintenance once it is established, 'Provence' makes a great edge plant for a garden. Quick to grow, this variety of Lavender fills out nicely, providing ample blooms to attract beneficial pollinators to your garden. Similar to 'Hidcote' Lavender in terms of habit and care, yet because it is a hybrid, 'Provence' will produce either sterile or no seed at all, so propagation must be done by cuttings.

    Important French, Provence Lavender Tips:

    • Well drained soil - lavenders will not tolerate poor drainage so add sand if you need to improve the quality of your soil. Most lavender 'deaths' occur because of wet roots. An alkaline soil is best.
    • They cannot tolerate humidity: damp, still air makes them susceptible to fungus ailments
    • Lavenders need full sun- 6 to 8 hours of sunshine for these Mediterranean natives
  • Lavandula x intermedia 'Provence'

    Characteristics: One of the best Lavender varieties for its intoxicating fragrance and easily removable buds, Lavender Provence is perennial in zones 5 through 11.

    Light:'Provence' prefers full sun

    Water: Like most Lavenders, 'Provence' is drought tolerant and doesn't need much water. Over watering is one of the biggest mistakes made with this plant, as they are easily susceptible to root rot or disease if they remain moist for too long.

    Soil:Very well drained, loamy soil is best for Lavender. These plants hate "wet feet", and you may even have to add sand to your soil mix to help aid drainage.

    Use: This evergreen is primarily grown for its sweet scent and is the best variety for crafts and potpourris, as the fragrant buds are easily removed and have a long lasting perfume.

    Extras: Deer and pest resistant, Lavenders are easy to grow and maintain in your garden or when potted.
