The lavender known as ‘Provence’ lavender (Lavandula x intermedia ‘Provence’) is a type of English lavender hybrid known as lavandin. It is grown in Provence, France in the commercial lavender fields. Flowers appear on long flower stems referred to as wands. The peak bloom time in France is early to midsummer. ‘Provence’ lavender is hardy in Zones 5 to 8 and grows 24 to 36 inches tall and wide.
French lavender needs full sun and well-drained, alkaline soil to reach its full potential. Prune French lavender plants at the end of the season to keep them attractive and maintain a manageable size. The flower heads on French lavender aren't useful as a culinary lavender because the flavor has heavy camphor tones.
