Lavandula stoechas also called French, Spanish or Butterfly Lavender, is recognisable by its bunny ears on top of the flowers. It’s used extensively for essential oils or potpourri, and is a superb landscape plant for the home garden. Varieties include Avonview, Major and Bee Brilliant. Flower colours include green, purple, blue, white, pink and bicoloured. It is more drought tolerant than other lavender types and tolerates higher temperatures than the Angustifolias.
