Description:

Spanish Lavender is a perennial herb native to the Mediterranean region. It's a popular choice in gardens not only for its aromatic qualities but also for its unique and attractive floral structure.

One of the most striking features of Spanish Lavender is its flowers. The blooms are deep purple, and the most distinctive aspect is the petal-like bracts that sit atop the flower spikes. These bracts are often a lighter shade of purple or pink and resemble small butterfly wings, adding an ornamental touch to the plant. Spanish Lavender typically blooms in late spring to early summer, providing a vibrant display of color.

In addition to its flowers, Spanish Lavender has gray-green, narrow, and aromatic foliage. The leaves release a pleasant fragrance when brushed against or crushed, making the plant a great addition to sensory gardens or pathways where visitors can enjoy the scent.

Spanish Lavender is well-suited for a variety of uses in the landscape. It can be planted in herb gardens, borders, rock gardens, and is particularly effective in drought-tolerant landscapes. Its compact size also makes it suitable for container gardening, allowing it to be placed on patios or balconies.

This variety of lavender prefers well-drained soil and is drought-tolerant once established. It thrives in full sun and benefits from regular pruning to maintain its shape and encourage new growth.

Overall, Spanish Lavender is valued for its beautiful and unusual flowers, aromatic foliage, and ease of care. Its ability to add color and fragrance to a variety of garden settings, along with its attractiveness to bees and butterflies, makes it a popular choice among gardeners.
