Spanish lavender

Not all my Spanish lavenders look like this in late January. Most look rather spindly at this point.

But, it's hard to beat a plant that looks this good after an usually cold winter.

I think it was a 'thank you' from last summer's Master Gardener conference, a cultivar called 'Anouka' maybe (darn, a quick search of previous posts brought all sort of other interesting thoughts about Spanish lavender, but not the source of this one). I'll have to do a more complete search.

Spanish lavenders are also tolerant of our humidity, unlike 'English' and 'French' lavenders.

  1. It's a lovely, hardy plant -- anything that looks that good this time of year is wonderful to me. :) I adore your little crocus!


Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
