Lavandula ×intermedia 'Yuulong'

Large, compact hedging plant with long flower stems 30-35 cm long and flower spikes about 4 cm long with a flowering peak at the end of December, about 2 weeks later than L. angustifolia. Flowers violet-blue.

Has the late-flowering characteristic of L. ×intermedia, Lavandin, but lacks the branched spikes of that hybrid. Originally considered a cultivar of L. angustifolia but probably best treated as a cultivar of Lavandin.

Raised and introduced by Rosemary Holmes and Edyth Anderson from a selection of plants supplied to them by Coora Cottage Herbs as L. vera, which had been grown from seed from the Dutch seed merchants, Van Dijk & Co.
