More delicate in colour than English lavender, it is well-suited to drying for crafts and culinary use.
Hardy perennial to 1.1 m high x 0.9 m wide.
Ten month long flower display from February to November. After a flower flush is finished cut bush back by 25 cm fertilise and watch it flower in another two weeks.
Most tolerant of all lavenders of wet humid summers – but still needs very sharp drainage and limey soil.
Has the English Lavender fragrance coupled with camphor overtones. Sage also has the camphor overtones. Hence use French Lavender flowers for cooking as you would Sage.
Dried flowers repel wallet and clothes moths.
