Lavandula x intermedia
Characteristics: 'Grosso' is a large, shrubby variety with huge, round flower spikes. This profuse bloomer is often called "Fat Spike" because of its large blooming stems. Perennial in zones 5-8, 'Grosso' is a hybrid and will not produce viable seed.

Water: If Lavenders could talk they would shout, "don't over water!" Excessive watering promotes disease and Lavenders are very susceptible to root rot from moist soil. When you do water, make sure to water the soil and not the plant, adequately and not excessively.
Soil: Well draining soil is the key to a happy Lavender, to help prevent root rot from moist soil.
