Lavandula stoechas Silver Anouk - Spanish Lavender

Lavandula stoechas Silver Anouk. Those purple bunny ears with white foliage. In all other regards the plants grow just like the other Lavandula stoechas cultivars. They are easy to grow, they stay low, they bloom for a long time from Spring into Summer. Lavandula stoechas Silver Anouk will bloom even longer if you have the inclination to cut off all of the dead flower heads. Lavandula stoechas has low water needs and is great for the Drought tolerant garden. Lavenders are busy waystations for insects and are necter sources for a host of bees and butterflies. I often include Lavenders in the butterfly garden plans. The Gray Hairstreak, Fiery Skipper, Mournful Duskywing, Common Buckeye and California Dogface Butterflies will sip nectar. Spanish lavender will tolerate temperatures into the low teens or even single digits.
