Lavandula x intermedia 'Dutch Group' (aka 'Vera' or simply 'Dutch') is introduced before 1920. It has a sturdy and straight growing habit with broad grey green foliage. Its foliage makes it a very attractive variety (provides winter interest). Its flowering is mostly a little disappointing but sometimes it can suddenly surprise with abundant flowering.
