Product Information

A French lavender, Lavandula stoechas 'Greek Mountain' is a impressive, relatively new variety with upright stems up to 60cm tall (2ft) and narrow, very aromatic grey-green leaves.

The large, fragrant purple flower heads are held on straight stems in late spring and throughout summer.

The flowers are topped with long, deep lilac bracts that look like butterfly wings or bunny ears - hence its common name of bunny ear or butterfly lavender.

The silvery leaves and blooms are packed with a heady scent, the purple flowers will provide you a colourful spectacle from early to mid-summer and are a magnet to bees, butterflies and other beneficial creatures, which will have your garden buzzing with life.

Perfect for growing either side of doorways, pathways and entrances or for the patio, lavender is perfect for many situations and French lavender is one of the prettiest and eye-catching varieties.

Greek Mountain takes well to pots, just make sure that the soil in the container is light and drains well.Once established, French Lavender is extremely drought tolerant, easy to grow and needs very little maintenance - you can keep it in great shape with a little pruning twice a year; trim lightly in mid to late summer, removing spent flower heads.

Prune again in early spring, removing about 2.5cm of growth.

Supplied as a set of 3 established plants in 12cm pots, ready to plant in their final positions.

Top Tips

An easy to grow, evergreen shrub that produces masses of beautifully scented flowers above silvery-grey foliage.

Drought-tolerant, lavender thrives in a sunny border, container, herb or gravel gardens.

Best planted when the soil is warming up, ensure that the plants gets really good drainage and there's no need to improve the soil as lavender thrives in any poor or moderately fertile conditions - just add a little grit to break up heavy soils.

Care Information

  • With very little maintenance needed, you can keep it in great shape with a little pruning twice a year; trim lightly in mid to late summer, removing spent flower heads
