French Lavender is not a culinary lavender and it doesn't have that great English Lavender fragrance. But, it is large and blooms from spring to frost and has a nice clean smell. However, do yourself a favor and give it a good pruning in mid summer and again in late fall. You will be rewarded with a much more attractive bush. Drought tolerant once established.
