Lavandula stoechas subsp. pedunculata

Plant details

Lavender is one of the most popular small garden shrubs. Plants have narrow, oily and aromatic evergreen leaves and bear dense spikes of small tubular flowers in summer.

Lavandula stoechas subsp. pedunculata is commonly referred to as French lavender. It’s an aromatic dwarf shrub with narrow, greyish leaves, and bears dense, oval heads of small purple flowers topped with with a tuft of purple bracts.

For best results, grow Lavandula stoechas subsp. pedunculata in well-drained soil in full sun. Cut back the flower stalks after they have finished, and then trim back plants in April, if necessary.
