French Lavender 'Van Gogh' Overview
The cultivar Lavandula 'Van Gogh' is a spreading, evergreen, aromatic shrub with a fragrant scent that attracts both bees and butterflies. They're great plants for adding to gardens and borders and can also be grown in containers. This cultivar is a hybrid bred from the plants Spanish lavender, Lavandula stoechas and green / white lavender, L. viridis. This cultivar produces bright green, linear, aromatic foliage with straight edges, which are densely covered in hairs, creating a woolly covering. Flowers are highly scented and attractive, coloured powder-blue to light purple, arranged on a cylindrical flowerhead and topped with showy bracts in a pale white to green-yellow shade. These bloom on stems measuring approximately 10-15cm long and the typical height of this cultivar is around 60-75cm tall.
