About This Plant

Sun. Evergreen, with sharply fragrant foliage. The Spanish variety has big, rabbit-eared flowerheads that attract bees and butterflies. Spanish lavender is less cold hardy than other varieties. It makes a pleasing addition to the early spring garden, but often fades in extremely wet (May) or dry (August) weather. Give it well drained soil and be careful not to overwater.
