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.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  Lavandula 'Willow Vale'.
