Full description and specifications

Lavandula angustifolia 'Ardeche Blue', is a cultivar valued for its vibrant color and strong fragrance. It comes from France, from the Ardeche region, approximately 200 km from the Mediterranean Sea.

It is a perennial, compact and dense shrub that can reach a height of 60-70 cm. The leaves are narrow, silver-green, which contrast nicely with the flowers.

The 'Ardeche Blue' flower is remarkable for its long, intense blue inflorescences that appear in the summer months. The flowers emit a strong fragrance and are attractive to bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects.

This variety of lavender prefers sunny places and well-drained soils. It is a drought-resistant plant that does not require much water once established.

Lavender 'Ardeche Blue' is suitable for cultivation in the garden or in pots (large, constantly irrigated) and is often used in landscape arrangements, in rock gardens or as a border plant. The flowers can also be harvested and dried to be used in lavender bags or other aromatic products.

Considered a shrub due to its lignified branches, lavender reaches maturity in 3-5 years and can easily reach the age of 50-60 years - western Europe is otherwise famous for its plantations up to 100 years old.

Height with pots included: 25-30 cm
