Lavandula angustifolia ‘Maillette’ is well-loved for both its intense, sweet fragrance and distinctive flowers. Its unusual barrel-shaped flowerheads are packed tightly with dark lilac flowers resembling stars. Its foliage is a subtle green-grey with elegant, elongated leaves. The plant is hardy, bushy, compact and upright – a distinguished and very well-behaved Lavender.
