Provence French Lavender (Lavandula intermedia 'Provence') is an intensely fragrant lavender, sometimes called Lavandin. It makes a wonderful cut flower with long stems and lavender-blue flower spikes. Provence French Lavender blooms can be used in cooking to flavor shortbread or to make tea or lemonade.
A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.
Lavender plants are at their best in the drier parts of the US like the Great Plains, Intermountain West and West Coast (which has a true Mediterranean climate (wet winters and dry summers). The key is to make sure you choose a variety with sufficient winter cold hardiness for your region. (‘Vera’ and ‘Pastor’s Pride’ are among the most cold hardy.) Yet with proper soil preparation, and planting site selection, Lavender can also thrive in moister, more humid climates like the Mid-West, East Coast and Mid-Atlantic states.
