Commonly known as French lavender, Lavandula Stoechas is an aromatic dwarf shrub popular for growing in borders and beds. Its compact size also makes it ideal for planting in pots and containers.
Lavandula Stoechas has a long flowering period with fragrant deep purple blooms appearing in spring and lasting all the way to early autumn. The flowers grow on tall, upright stems and feature little bracts in a lighter shade of purple on top. Lavender flowers are bee-friendly and attract all kinds of pollinators to the garden. Foliage is grey-green in colour with narrow, linear leaves.
French lavender is commonly used for making herbal teas. However, it has other culinary uses, such as flavouring couscous, soups, and other savoury dishes.
This variety is less hardy than English lavender and may need extra protection against harsh winter temperatures. However, it is a great small all-rounder shrub ideal for almost any area of the patio or garden. Plant in a sheltered, sunny spot in well-draining soil and cut the flower stems back once the blooms have faded.
