Ready for anything. Known as the Swiss Army plant of herbs, Fat Budded Grosso Lavender offers the best qualities of any lavender hybrid.

Contrary to its elegant, long stems and lush, aromatic fragrance, this plant is hardy and can withstand heat and drought conditions. In your landscape, this herb is unmatched in its beauty and will last from early spring to late fall with minimum care. Once bloomed, the uses of this plant are endless. Cut the stalks for crafts, potpourri, arrangements, teas, vinegars, sachets, or even the bath. The aroma is soothing and relaxing, and the display magnificent. From Roberta's.

Zone Finder

Don't know your zone?

Zone 11:

Ships Week of March 21st

This zone is the warmest, and refers to any region that seldom dips below 40°F. Zone 11 is considered to be frost-free.

Zone 10:

Ships Week of March 21st

Plants that love heat and humidity do very well in this tropical climate. Zone 10 receives plenty of rain, sunshine, and warm temperatures. Its average annual low temperature is 30–35°F.

Zone 9:

Ships Week of March 21st

This zone includes the thermal belt of California's Central Valley. In this growing region, gardeners don't worry about cold hardiness like they do in other parts of the United States. The bigger concern here is the summer heat. Weather in the thermal belt is affected by both coastal and interior weather patterns. Hot and very dry air is pushed in from the inland while the ocean provides cool and moist air. Plants that prefer cool and moist summers are difficult to grow in this region, whereas heat-loving plants thrive with minimal attention. Zone 9 has very hot summers, while winters have low temperatures ranging from 28–18°F, although frost is rare. Rain between November and April averages 2 inches per month. There's constant sunshine during growing season. Plants that do well in this area with full sun are butterfly bushes, lavender, black-eyed Susans, hibiscus, and sedum. Part-sun plants include honeysuckle, phlox, passion flower, hollyhock, and bee balm. Bleeding hearts would work great in shade.

Zone 8:

Ships Week of March 28th

This zone ranges 10–20°F as the average annual low temperature. Most parts of Zone 8 enjoy a temperate climate with mild winters. Summers are generally warm with cooler night temperatures. Due to the long growing season, this zone is home to many beautiful gardens. Although it's too warm for lilacs, many other plants from Zones 7 & 9 may actually do well here depending on the microclimate of your location. Suggested for some plants that should flourish in Zone 8 are angel trumpets, astilbe, bee balm, bleeding hearts, columbine, daylily, hostas, and butterfly bushes.

Zone 7:

Ship Weeks Vary by Location:

  • 7a ships week of 4/11
  • 7b ships week of 4/4

This zone has hot summers and mild, but pronounced, winters that sharply define the season without severe winter cold or enervating humidity. This zone also has a climate conducive to growing such plants as peonies, lilacs, and flower bulbs. In Zone 7, typical winter lows range from 35–26°F (2 to -3°C with record lows averaging from 18–0°(-8 to -18°C).

Zone 6:

Ship Weeks Vary by Location:

  • 6a ships week of 4/25
  • 6b ships week of 4/18

Warmer summers and cooler winters distinguish Zone 6 from coastal Zone 5. With a long growing season from 155 days at Cottage Grove to 280 days and 40–55 inches of annual precipitation in most places. If you live in Portland for example, it's among the mildest parts of Zone 6. Zone 6 averages 10–15°F (5–8°C) higher than those along the coast, while winters are the warm summers of this zone. The cold winters make this area exceptional for growing plants like peonies and plants that need at least 6–8 weeks of cold weather to grow and bloom properly.

Zone 5:

Ship Weeks Vary by Location:

  • 5a ships week of 5/16
  • 5bn ships week of 5/9
  • 5bs ships week of 5/2

Summer highs run between 65°–70°F (18–21°C) along the coast, and 70–75°F (21–24°C). Such mild temperatures are great for growing begonias. Steady breezes and lower temperatures, especially along the coast, make windbreaks and warm microclimates critical for heat-loving plants. Average January minimum temperatures range from 33–41°F (1–5°C), with annual lows averaging a few degrees colder.

Zone 4:

Ships Week of May 23rd

This zone has more cold than neighboring Zone 5, more snow, and a shorter growing season. Compared to neighboring zones in Alaska and Canada, however, it has less winter cold and a longer growing season. No zone grows better perennials and bulbs. Average winter lows in Zone 4 range from 34°–28°F with extreme lows averaging 8°–0°F. The growing season is 150–200 days long, but because Zone 4 summers are temperate (high average from the low 60s to the 70s), plants take more time to develop.

Very pleased I got these plants today and they are so full and lush. I am so pleased with these plants. They look so healthy. I am glad I sent for them. 05-13-15
Please don't buy First year it grew little bit and nothing happened to the following year. Going to ask for refund, but they will only give replacement;( 05-07-15
HARDY AND HEALTHY Received plants a week ago, They were packaged very secure and the plants came very healthy and hardy. I planted them a week ago and they look very healthy and they have a beautiful lavender smell. They are a healthy green color. Can't wait till they bloom lavender flowers. Will dry them for my house. 05-02-15
HUGE & HEALTHY WOW! these plants have the right name, FAT BUDDED & BUSHY. Not one leaf was out of place, the soil was well contained with an extra covering on top of the soil. The healthy roots were bursting out of the drain holes. they arrived thriving! I cannot wait until they are bigger so that I can start to snip and use in cooking dishes. They are in fertile soil and will rotate around the patio for full to partial sun throughout the summer. Gardening is GREAT with Roberta's. 04-29-15
not happy first year they grew a little not too many flowers thought ,second year nothing 03-25-15
best lavenders purchased these 2 years ago...grew beautifully...last year they were twice/three times the size. this year i will definitely have to divide them. gorgeous fragrance 03-22-15
one out of 4 lasted in raised beds. all were planted near each other , luckily I had moved one.Right after that the 3 died. The one in a different bed thrived, gave lots of flower stalks and I saved the seeds. This plant, in it's second year, looks great. 03-11-15
Disappointing I purchased this last spring and I am waiting for the replacement to arrive this spring. Only one plant survived to this year. I will no longer purchase plants from QVC. 02-25-15
Love this lavender collection Received plants last Spring really small. However, these plants did bloom in the Summer. Currently, these plants growing strong in southern California warm winter. 02-09-15
Best Lavender ever!!! Love this lavender ...received big hardy plants! They all produced tons of flowers that smelled beautiful! Cut bundles and put them in my closet...now in winter ,I love to get my clothes out and smell the summer! 01-20-15
Not such a great deal If I'm lucky, I will have one plant make it through the year. Did not matter what I did, they just died. Too bad. Very disappointed. 12-02-14
Hardy, pretty plants--arrived too early I absolutely love this particular lavender collection. Two of the plants are growing great in a partly shaded area. I only wish they could have been sent later in the season. I live in Delaware and the winter lingered much longer than usual. I lost two of the plants because I kept hoping to put them directly in the ground. I'll have to transplant them into a bigger pot if they arrive early again next year. I'm not sure if Roberta's could change the time they send their plants so that it matches with the weather of that year. 11-22-14
