Origin & Breeding History: 'Anouk Deluxe 109' is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the breeder, Lammert Koning, in Nuis, Netherlands. It originated from a controlled cross conducted in July 2007, between the Lavandula stoechas hybrid designated 'L-507', as the female parent, and the Lavandula stoechas variety 'Giant', as the male parent. From the resulting progeny, 'Anouk Deluxe 109' was selected in 2009, in Nuis, for its branching habit, leaf size, and appearance. 'Anouk Deluxe 109' was first propagated by vegetative cuttings in September 2009, in De Lier, Netherlands.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Anouk Deluxe 109' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2013/1632, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, in Angers, France. The trial was conducted by the Groupe d'Étude et de contrôle des Variétés Et des Semences, in Cavaillon, France, from 2014 to 2015. The colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
