Home of the original Goodwin Creek Grey!
It has a Semi-open to dense growth habit. Leaves are slightly toothed with sage-green to grey with an overall silvery look. The stems can be up to a foot long with the spikes extending even further in 4-5 inches in length. Dull purple bracts and calyx.
Slightly pungent aroma.
This is a hybrid of French lavender that we discovered about 20 years ago. It is similar to 2 other French lavender hybrids, Lavandula x heterophyla (from the early 1800's) and Lavandula x allardii (from the 1890's). All 3 bloom throughout the summer and will even bloom in the winter in mild climates. 'Goodwin Creek Grey' and French lavender are the best choices for a winter blooming indoor lavender. They need about 5 hours of sunlight each day for winter bloom; a south facing window, sun room or sun porch should provide enough light. It looks great in the landscape, large containers or trained as topiaries. The silvery toothed foliage is very attractive and the corollas are deep purple.
The best variety for indoor winter blooms.
