Provence Lavender Plants

Lavandula x intermedia 'Provence'

Lavender 'Provence', a wonderfully fragrant herb, grows quickly and produces buds that are easily removed for potpourri making . This aromatic herb is a Lavadin, or English Lavender Hybrid. As an ornamental herb, it blooms profusely, smells great and grows larger and faster than many others. Considered one of the more "rugged" varieties, 'Provence' is drought tolerant and does not need much water to thrive.

A wonderfully soothing scent, Provence Lavender is used in many candles, cosmetics, perfumes and Aromatherapy products. This particular variety is named for the Provence region in France, where the majority of Lavender supply and production come from.

A French Lavender

Deer resistant and low maintenance once it is established, 'Provence' makes a great edge plant for a garden. Quick to grow, this variety of Lavender fills out nicely, providing ample blooms to attract beneficial pollinators to your garden. Similar to 'Hidcote' Lavender in terms of habit and care, yet because it is a hybrid, 'Provence' will produce either sterile or no seed at all, so propagation must be done by cuttings.

Important French, Provence Lavender Tips:

  • Well drained soil - lavenders will not tolerate poor drainage so add sand if you need to improve the quality of your soil. Most lavender 'deaths' occur because of wet roots. An alkaline soil is best.
  • They cannot tolerate humidity: damp, still air makes them susceptible to fungus ailments
  • Lavenders need full sun- 6 to 8 hours of sunshine for these Mediterranean natives

Uses: Lavender 'Provence' is a very aromatic herb and its shrubby habit makes it a great border to any herb garden. Because its blooms can be easily removed with little damage, 'Provence' is highly prized for making potpourris and herb pillows.

Tips: Because Lavender 'Provence' is an English hybrid, it will not produce viable seeds, so you must propagate by cuttings.

5 of 5 Loving these! April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Sandy Hoy from San Antonio, TX United States  
Bought 2 of these last year to go with the Goodwin Creek Grey variety. They did so well overwintering and bloomed last month. Bought more this year to do mass planting of both varieties. Love, love, love the lavenders!

4 of 5 To keep inside the plastic or not to April 30, 2019
Reviewer: V B from Fort Worth, TX United States  
I bought three lavender plants and one remained within its plastic wrap and the other two I took out of the wrap.  All three were planted but the one inside the wrap is the only one thriving.  I did everything that is given as instruction.  I would like somebody to contact me and help me save my plants.
