2/L. x intermedia. Grosso
Grosso produces compact conical spikes which while dark purple when fresh dry to a steely silver mauve. As a premiere essential oil producer Grosso’s dry florets have an intensely refreshing and stimulating aroma. As with all our oil plants Grosso florets are great for pot pourri or any other application where a strong fragrance is needed. The camphor and cineole content of lavandin plants make their florets stimulating inclusions in body scrubs and as botanical inclusion in hand crafted soaps. Grosso’s sculptural spikes also make them wonderful when used in floral arrangements. Bunches are available on request.
3/L. x intermedia. Margaret
Margaret produces large lacy spikes which dry to a silvery mauve grey. Margaret is a plant which produces high quality essential oil and this means its dry florets have a strong but refreshingly floral aroma with hints of camphor. As with all our oil plants, Margaret as loose lavender is great for pot pourri or any other application where a stronger fragrance is needed. The long lacy spikes are wonderful when used in floral arrangements and for interior decoration. Bunches are available on request.
