Grown in the Provence region of France, blue lavender, also known as lavandin, is a hybrid species between English lavender (L. angustifolia) and Portuguese lavender (L. latifolia). The intense color of the flower buds make this variety desirable for use in crafts when visual presentation counts.

Their scent is just as impressive, albeit more medicinal than other lavenders due to the presence of camphor.
