Lavender ‘Abriali’ (Lavandula x abriali)

Description

One of the oldest lavandins, Abriali is beautifully colored and a little shorter than Grosso. It was also used for oil production before Grosso was even developed. Lavandin is often larger than lavender and has longer, more pointed flower spikes. It tends to flower later than its highly celebrated cousin. Lavandin plants produce around half as much again more oil than lavender plants. Although there are many similarities between the oils, they have different chemical compositions. Lavandin oil contains between 7-12% camphor, making it more powerful and uplifting than lavender oil. It can also act as a mild stimulant.
