Lavandula stoechas ssp pedunculata 'Willow Vale' (Willow Vale Lavender) - Lavandula stoechas ssp. pedunculata 'Willow Vale' is a vigorous and very showy lavender, 2-3 feet tall and as wide with strongly aromatic silver-gray foliage. The flowers with blue purple bracts on top rise above the foliage on long peduncles from spring into fall. It is thought to be one of the hardiest of the Spanish Lavender group as it is known to take temperatures down below 15 degrees F. It does best when it is planted in the full sun. This plant came from British plant breeder David Tristram of Walberton Nursery in West Sussex, England. The flowers of this lavender are not recommended for human consumption. We grew this plant from 2002 until 2008.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Lavandula stoechas ssp pedunculata 'Willow Vale'.
