Spanish Lavender: Fragrance and Flair

Spanish Lavender, Lavandula stoechas, is a distinctive lavender variety appreciated for its unique flowers and aromatic foliage. Originating from the Mediterranean region, this evergreen shrub adds charm and fragrance to gardens with its vibrant blooms and silvery-green leaves.

With its distinctive blooms and delightful fragrance, Spanish Lavender adds a touch of Mediterranean flair to gardens. Following these care guidelines will help ensure the health and vibrancy of this charming lavender variety.


  • Flowers: Spanish Lavender is known for its showy, pineapple-shaped flower heads that sit atop slender stems. The flower heads consist of bracts that resemble rabbit ears, giving it a distinctive and playful appearance. Blooms can vary in colour, ranging from deep purple to pink and white.
  • Foliage: The narrow, silvery-green leaves of Spanish Lavender contribute to its overall appeal. The foliage is aromatic, releasing a pleasant fragrance when touched or brushed against.
  • Size: This lavender variety typically grows in a compact, mounded form, making it suitable for borders, containers, and garden beds.

Care Requirements

  • Light: Spanish Lavender thrives in full sunlight. Plant it in a location where it receives at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and flowering.
  • Soil: Well-draining soil is crucial for the health of Spanish Lavender. Amend the soil with sand or gravel to improve drainage. This plant prefers slightly alkaline to neutral soil.
  • Water: While Spanish Lavender is drought-tolerant once established, it benefits from regular watering, especially during dry spells. However, it's essential to avoid waterlogged conditions, as lavender is susceptible to root rot.
  • Pruning: Regular pruning after the flowering period encourages bushier growth and prolongs the life of the plant. Cut back spent flower stalks and shape the plant as needed.
  • Temperature: Spanish Lavender is well-suited to warm climates and is hardy in USDA zones 8 to 10. In colder climates, it can be grown as an annual or brought indoors during winter.
  • Fertilization: Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to provide essential nutrients. Avoid excessive nitrogen, as it can promote lush growth at the expense of flowers.
