(Lavandula angustifolia 'Violet Intrigue')
lah-VAN-dew-lah an-gus-tih-FOE-lee-ah
Genus:  Lavandula
'Violet Intrigue' exhibits the typical handsome gray foliage of good lavenders, but its form and flowers are particularly noteworthy. Each stem is strongly upright, and requires no staking, and the blooms are a deep violet that remains vibrant even when temperatures rise. Other than occasional deadheading, no additional maintenance chores are required.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Strong, upright form. Deep violet flowers. Tolerant of heat and humidity.
Care:  Provide full sun and humusy, very well-drained soil. Plants may be overwintered indoors in a warm, bright area or in a cold frame or unheated garage.
