Lavandula stoechas atlas - Spanish Lavender

It's the rabbit ears. That is the first thing I think of when looking at the Lavandula Atlas is the blooms. The foliage is smaller and the blooms larger than regular Spanish lavender. The blooms sometimes topple the stalks when it is misty or when overhead water is applied and there aren't as many blooms. Come deadheading time, if you do that, the large flower size is a bit of a bonus, there are fewer of them. In the end the blooms are a size large, this Spanish Lavender is a regular in my gardens. Lavandula stoechas Atlas is great for the Butterfly Garden. The Gray Hairstreak, Fiery Skipper, Mournful Duskywing, Common Buckeye and California Dogface Butterflies will sip nectar.
