Lavender 'Gros Bleu' (Lavandula x intermedia 'Gros Bleu')
Perennial, hardy in zones 6-9
Outstanding lavender from France and a favorite on lavender farms growing for fresh and dried bouquets, potpourris, and for landscape use. Flowers are sweet scented and deep in purple. Flower spikes can be 4in long on extra long stems, which makes Gros Bleu an excellent choice for cutting.
