Lavandula dentata var. candicans (Gray Leaved French Lavender) - Often sold as Gray French Lavender, it is similar to the species but more robust. The leaves are a gray-green, and tooth-margined. They are grayer than L. dentata. Short spikes with pale lavender-blue flowers bloom nearly year round. It sprawls to about 3' x 5' , takes full sun, has low water needs, and is hardy to about 20 degrees F. The flowers of this lavender are not recommended for human consumption.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Lavandula dentata var. candicans.
