Common Name – French lavender – With soft silver foliage and scented purple flowers, French lavender will add a splash of colour to your garden for an extended period, flowering for much of the year, including the cooler months. A variety which has stood the test of time in Australian gardens. French is ideal for a larger lavender border.
