Dried Lavender Stems (Flowers): Gros Bleu (Intermedia, French)
Our stems are more than a pretty flower! In any room they will help to freshen the air. When buds fall off the stems, crush them to help in scenting the room.
The GROS BLEU Variety is is a slightly wilder type of dried lavender. Not all stems are straight. It is one of the deeper purples in the intermedia family.
Not all lavenders are the same -- consider colour and height and even scent when picking: Do you want a deep purple? Then choose our lavender (English) stems: These are around 12 inches (30 cms) in height. Varieties include: Royal Velvet and English mix. Want a taller stem that is lighter in colour (greyish purple)? Then choose our lavandin (French) stems. These are around 18 inches (40 cms) in height. Varieties include: Grosso and Gros Bleu.
Please note that the number of stems in a given bunch will vary. The number of stems typically ranges from 75 to 125 per bunch.
