What is the best smelling most fragrant lavender.  Many would agree, it's Grosso lavender. We certainly would! If you like a dependable, gorgeous lavender plant with stems so long they blow with the breeze, choose Grosso. This is also the go-to lavender for essential oil and hydrosol because of its lavender essential oil content.

At Pause Lavender Farm, we love Grosso lavender for its long stems and beautiful dried bouquets that are always in demand. 

The lavender buds are outstanding when used in culinary dishes and baked goods, potpourris, and sachets.

This is a cold hardy lavender plant making it a good choice for those northern climates. The flowers bloom later in the summer, and you may even get two harvests from it.

Prune in the Spring and Fall to avoid woody growth and to help keep that lavender gumdrop shape. 

 Use for lavender:

  • Bees love this plant! 
  • Gorgeous to have growing in your garden.
  • Relaxing, can help ease anxiety (I can attest!).
  • Cut the flowers to use as fresh bouquets.
  • Give cut flower bouquets to friends and loved ones.
  • Cut foliage for winter floral designs.
  • Dried flowers can be debudded to make sachets.
  • Dry flower cuttings and use buds in culinary dishes.
  • Put in a home decor vase and use as an indoor plant.
  • Put in a home decor vase and give as a gift for Mother's Day.
  • Make your own lavender hydrosol or essential oil. 
  • Larger stems make this a good lavender for wreaths and crafts. 
  • Use the dried stems in the fireplace in the winter - smells great.
