Lanvandin is developed by crossing lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) with lavender spike (Lavandula Latifolia). It normally grows larger than the true lavender and may produce blue flowers like true lavender or greyish flowers like aspic, it also has a higher yield of oil than true lavander or aspic.
Lavandin does not have a long history, its properties seem to combine those of True Lavender and Aspic.
