Lavandin Grosso is a Lavender hybrid between True lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) and Lavender Spike (Lavandula Latifolia). High quality organic Lavandin Grosso essential oil is grown in France and possesses a wonderful aromatic balance between herbal, floral, and camphoraceous notes.
“True” Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) grows at high altitudes, while Spike Lavender (Lavandula Spica) thrives at lower altitudes on the same sunny hills in the south of France.
When these two plants flower simultaneously and cross-pollinate to create the hybrid Lavandula x Intermedia, there are several cultivars of this hybrid that appear - namely Levandula x intermedia "Abrialis", "Grosso" , "Reydovan" and "Super". Two important advantages of these hybrids/cultivars: they are more easily grown, and they have a significantly higher yield of essential oils than True Lavenders, thus they can be considerably less costly.
