Snowy River Foundation Lavanders


Growing out farm on firm foundations

After quality and yield testing our initial plantings of ten different cultivars, five Lavandula angustifolia cultivars were chosen as the foundation plants for our Snowy River Lavender’s commercial planting program. Two of these are Australian cultivars L.a. ‘Bee’ and L.a. ‘Cookie’, two are New Zealanders, L.a. ‘Pacific Blue’ and L.a. ‘Avice Hill’ (PBR) and we also have the French cultivar L.a. ‘Maillette’. These plants are all high yielding and more importantly each produce oils which while mostly well balanced in the key lavender compounds are also distinctive with their own characteristic aroma and chemistry. We are growing and distilling these plants in pure stands and selling on the oils as single cultivar distillations with their vintage GC/MS profiles available for those interested in plant chemistry and essential oil consistency.
