French lavender. Commonly used by florists, this is a tall-growing species to 3’ with equal breadth. The grayish-green leaves are fern-like and feature distinctive square-toothed margins, and emit a delicious fresh scent with a hint of camphor that lasts only a few months when dried. Lavender-purple flowers bloom constantly in mild winter areas and are borne on flexible, plump, compressed spikes; they make striking dried flowers. One of the few lavenders that tolerates humidity. Hardy to 20F. Spain and the Halearic Islands. Deer resistant.
