This Portugese/Spanish lavender has long purple bracts like rabbit's 'ears' on tall stems in June and July, held well clear of the short, grey-green aromatic foliage. It needs a hot, dry, sheltered position to thrive, with excellent drainage, and withstands drought well. If you can't provide these conditions, grow in a large container and stand under cover in winter. Give a light trim after flowering, but don't cut it hard back. It is still sometimes sold as L. stoechas 'Papillon', and has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
