Since its introduction by the lavender grower Pierre Grosso in 1973 (France), ‘Grosso’ has swept over swathes of ground in the countryside, partly due to the loss of many species caused by the ‘virus’ that had such a devastating effect. He found several sturdy, healthy young plants still surviving in a bleak field. The young plants have delicate leaves and grow slowly. The plant grows close to the ground and forms a small round hillock with bifurcated flowering stems 50cm long, which spread out. The lovely dark spikes make it lovely addition to any garden, and when cut early the flowers are ideal for drying. Also known as ‘Dilly Dilly’.
