Lavandula ×intermedia 'Provence'

Lavandula ×intermedia 'Provence'

The web is replete with information about lavender (more), so I'll only add that the cultivar 'Provence' is purported to be moisture-tolerant, making it better suited for maritime climates. I've not noticed it performing any better or worse than other lavenders in the garden, though.

There are a number of lavender festivals around the world, including some in Washington state this upcoming weekend (for example, Sequim, WA). I'm fairly certain, though, that France is the best place in the world to see lavender fields.

I enjoy your site I have looked at your flowers every day they brighten your day. MS

I share the sentiment of Margaret. I am also enjoying the knowledge and expertise of this site.

You've captured a beautiful moment in time with your picture! Thank you for sharing. I love lavender.
