We are currently taking plant orders for spring 2012. Any plant orders placed online will be processed for Spring shipping beginning April 16. The lavandins were developed in the late 1920's. The hybrids naturally occurred between Lav. angustifolia and Lav. latifolia. Both of these grew in close proximity to each other at about 1,600 feet in the Provence region of France. Researchers then produced six seeds that yielded two plants identified as 'lavandins'. These are generally sterile hybrids, so the practice of taking vegetative cuttings was used and thousands of plants could be produced to be just like the parent plant. The hybrid lavandin offers many advantages: a robust plant, adapting readily to difficult climatic conditions and poor soil, it grows very well. It has a yield of essential oil that can be ten times that of the angustifolias.
We will substitute size or similar kind of lavender if the lavender you order is out of stock.
The cost of shipping will be determined when your plants are ready to ship. The "Estimate Shipping" feature of the shopping cart is only a guide and may not be the actual shipping cost.
We are no longer offering 2.5 plants online.
