Lavandula stoechas, commonly known as French Lavender or Spanish Lavender, is a striking evergreen shrub that adds a touch of Mediterranean elegance to UK gardens. It typically grows to a height of 60-80 cm, forming compact mounds of narrow, grey-green leaves topped with distinctive, butterfly-like flower heads.

Best planted in full sun and well-drained, alkaline soil, Lavandula stoechas thrives in warm and sunny locations. It blooms profusely from late spring to early summer, producing long spikes adorned with small, aromatic flowers topped by showy bracts in shades of purple, pink, or white. These unique blooms are highly attractive to bees and other pollinators, providing them with abundant nectar and pollen.

Maintenance for Lavandula stoechas is straightforward. Prune lightly after flowering to shape the plant and remove spent flower spikes. Feed with a balanced fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy foliage and flowering without stimulating excessive growth.

Beyond its ornamental value, Lavandula stoechas is valued for its aromatic properties, making it ideal for use in potpourri, sachets, or as a culinary herb. Its drought tolerance and attractiveness to pollinators make it a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly gardens, supporting bee populations and promoting biodiversity. By planting Lavandula stoechas, you not only enhance your garden with its Mediterranean charm and fragrance but also contribute to the conservation of essential pollinators in your outdoor space.
