Lavandula x hybrida var. grosso belongs to the Lamiaceae family. The Lavandin is a hybrid between Common Lavender and Spike Lavender. It is a shrub with branched stems reaching a meter high. The leaves are entire, linear, with opposite disposition and revolute margin. Presents a membranous bract and two green bracts linear on each side of the central bract. The corolla color is even bluer than Abrialis and the tang is bigger and sharper. This clone was selected by Mr. Grosso from Goult (Vaucluse Department). Although Lavandin Grosso variety has less fine and most camphoraceous essence than Lavandin Super its odour is finest than abrialis. It is the most widely planted variety in France but its cultivation is increasing significantly in Spain, because it is stronger and more homogeneus than the Super and performs well at high altitudes. The higher altitude the plant is cultivated, the best quality of essential oil is obtained. Also Lavandin Grosso has the highest essential oil yield.
