Wild Lavender

August 15th, 2010

For the amount of Wild Lavender that is offered on the internet, it is amazing how few pictures there are. Here is one from the Montaigne de Lure, where much of the real wild Lavender comes from. Wild Lavender generally grows in altitudes higher than those of the cultivated population Lavender. Wild Lavender or “Lavande suavage” is available from the OSA site in a 2 for 1 special for a limited time only, as long as the allocated supplies last.
